The Wabash Avenue Music Collective at Kehrein Center for the Arts

May 21, 2023


The Wabash Avenue Music Collective presents a program characterized by strings but fortified by moments for clarinet and voice. Haydn’s String Quartet in D Minor, famous for its opening fifths, casts a melancholy spell, highlighting the expressive range of the strings. Mozart’s Quintet is a masterfully integrated chamber work in which individual strings occasionally sing out from center stage above the harmonious blend created by the clarinet. Featuring mezzo-soprano Sara Dailey in this performance, Raimi’s Runagate Runagate allows the human voice to do the same.

This event is free. Tickets are required.

Please note: this event takes place at Kehrein Center for the Arts, 5628 W. Washington Blvd.

Parking is available on a limited, first-come first-served basis in the lot directly north of the Kehrein Center for the Arts (entrance off Parkside Ave.), the lot to the northeast of the building (entrance off Central Ave.), and the lot on the northeast corner of Washington Blvd. and Central Ave (entrance off Central Ave.).
