Music from Marlboro- 3_18_08.jpgThe Musicians from Marlboro, the touring extension of the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, will return to Greenwich Library on Sunday, February 15, at 4 p.m., as part of the Friends of Greenwich Library's Cole Concert Series. Five musicians will play works by Hayden, Kodály and Brahms in the Cole Auditorium.

The program highlights exceptional young musicians together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation.

The Italian-born Hadelich will be accompanied by cellist Peter Stumpf, violinist Karina Canellakis and violist Sebastian Krunnies.
