Join us for a new series featuring music by the Ritz Chamber Players, Jacksonville’s dynamic ensemble group made up of members who perform with prestigious organizations including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Pittsburg Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and the London Symphony. Founded in 2000 by clarinetist and Artistic Director Terrance Patterson, the Ritz Chamber Players will the fill the Hixon Auditorium on four Tuesdays afternoons throughout the year with classical music that has a fresh, energetic flavor.
The theme for the October 23 concert is “Beauty is Pain” and will feature a listener-friendly program of sublime beauty which cleverly hides the artistic angst underneath. An expansive cast of strings join the piano and winds for a unique musical excursion!
