The Musicians from Marlboro return to Greenwich Library with a new group of esteemed performers, which for the first time will feature two vocalists.

Five musicians and two concert singers will perform the works of Franz Joseph Hayden, Robert Schumann and Bela Bartok.

The program highlights exceptional young musicians together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation. Accomplished concert singers and recitalists Hyunah Yu, soprano, and Nicholas Phan, tenor, will add a new dimension to the touring group's previous performances at the Library. Marlboro festival senior artist and violinist Ida Levin will be accompanied by Yvonne Lam, violin, Jonathan Chu, violin and viola, Michael Korman, cello, and pianist Lydia Brown.

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program has introduced many of today's leading solo and chamber music artists to American audiences; among them are pianists Richard Goode, Murray Perahia, Yefim Bronfman and András Schiff, violinists Pamela Frank, Jaime Laredo and Shlomo Mintz, flutist Marina Piccinini, clarinetist Richard Stoltzman and soprano Benita Valente. Now in its 44th season, Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the varied programs and spirit of music making so characteristic of Marlboro, prompting the Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as "a virtual guarantee of musical excellence" and the New York Times to call them "extraordinary... rising stars and music legends play side by side."

The performance is free and open to the public. Doors open at 3:30 p.m., show begins at 4:00 p.m. This concert is made possible by your contributions to the Friends of the Greenwich Library. For more information, please call the Friends Office at 622-7938.
