Now in its 10th season, the chamber music ensemble led by Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Frank Almond has, in the words of Shepherd Express critic Rick Walters, “achieved and sustained a high artistic level in a variety of sophisticated programs” with high standards of musicianship and a parade of great guests. Baritone Kelly Markgraf will be featured in a concert of works by Samuel Barber, Ned Rorem and Arnold Schoenberg. Tickets are available at franklymusic.org for $35 or $10 for students.
