Glen Roven offers an audience of parents and children the simple keys and tools to enjoy the masterpieces of the ages. Focusing on one piece of chamber music, Mozart's "String Quartet No. 21," the Concert starts with a description of the piece and the instruments, followed by a lunch, then a full-out-performance by The GPRrecords Festival String Quartet. Filled with insight, wit and humor, Maestro Roven concocts a concert perfect for the seasoned concert-goer as well as the novice.
