World Class Chamber Music
Experience the highest caliber chamber music at the Alaska Airlines Autumn Classics this September. Cellist Zuill Bailey returns to Anchorage for two weekends of performances, beginning Sept 6. Pianist Lara Downes joins Bailey for the first weekend in a showcase of American composers, including works by Barber and Bernstein. Guitarist David Leisner will also be featured that weekend.
For the second weekend, we welcome the return of a long-time friend, violist Marcus Thompson, along with violinist Chee-Yun and the dazzling young pianist, Natasha Paremski. Piano quartets will be featured all weekend, and you won't want to miss our special celebration of radio station KLEF's 25th birthday on Sept 15 at the Hotel Captain Cook.
