One of the foremost violinists of his generation, James Ehnes is a favorite guest of renowned conductors including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Marin Alsop, and Sir Andrew Davis. He appears regularly at Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Chicago’s Symphony Center, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. His recording of the Korngold, Barber, and Walton violin concertos won Grammy and JUNO awards, and his recent recording of the Bartók Concerti was nominated for a Gramophone Award. Mr. Ehnes is the 2019 Grammy Award Winner for Best Classical Instrumental Solo for his performance of the Kernis Violin Concerto.

Praised by critics for his passionate expression and dazzling technique, pianist Andrew Armstrong has delighted audiences in performances at many of the world’s great halls. Andrew’s orchestral engagements across the globe have seen him perform a sprawling repertoire of more than 50 concertos with orchestra. He has performed with such conductors as Peter Oundjian, Itzhak Perlman, Günther Herbig, Stefan Sanderling, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and has appeared in solo recitals in the most venerable  chamber music series. Beginning in 2018, Andrew became Artistic Director of the Chamber Music on Main series at the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina.  That same year, he also was appointed Director of the Green Lake Festival of Music’s Chamber Music Camp in Ripon, Wisconsin.

In these programs, the duo presents the complete Beethoven sonatas for piano and violin, performed in three nights during our 70th season. 

Tickets can be purchased as a 3-night subscription package or separately as single tickets.
