Please join the Cassatt Quartet in a very special event at the Clark Institute on Dec.6th at 7pm,
as we present world premieres by composers Ileana Perez-Velazquez, Zachary Wadsworth and
Dylan Schneider, each of whom is a member of the Williams College faculty. Each composition
is inspired by their favorite artwork from the Clark’s permanent collection; the artwork included
are “Rocket” by Turner, works of Mary Cassatt, Degas and Monet as well as the Clark Institute
itself. Nora Rosengarten, the Clark’s curatorial assistant, will give a brief introduction to each
composition, providing in-depth details on the object(s) that inspired the composer.
To celebrate the opening of Williamstown’s Holiday Walk weekend, the Cassatt String Quartet
will round out the program with the festive music of Vivaldi’s “Winter” from the Four Seasons,
and selections from the holiday favorite “The Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky.
