Robert Burns Celebration with Seán Heely Trio @ Arts Barn

Join award-winning Scottish fiddler Seán Heely & his ensemble of nationally acclaimed Celtic musicians for a celebration of the life of poet Robert Burns. A festive evening of music, poetry, whiskey & haggis.

Whiskey tasting & haggis at 7:30 p.m., followed by music & poetry. Patrons are encouraged to wear Scottish dress or anything plaid.

Inspired by his Scottish ancestry, Seán Heely breathes new life into the rich traditions of Celtic music, engaging audiences with every bow stroke. Follow Heely’s fiddle journey through Scotland, Ireland and America. A U.S National Scottish Fiddle Champion and an award-winning Irish Fiddler, his music also encompasses classical, bluegrass and swing. Heely has performed with traditional music icons such as Irish fiddle legend Liz Carroll and cello virtuoso Natalie Haas. From lively reels and jigs to the haunting airs and songs of Scotland and Ireland, he seamlessly weaves ancient traditions with modern compositions.

McClintock Distilling is Maryland’s first and only organic distillery, making internationally award-winning whiskies, gins and vodka since 2016. Located in downtown Frederick, McClintock uses locally sourced non-gmo and pesticide free grains and natural botanicals to make all of their spirits from the highest quality ingredients.

Midori, violin and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano @ The Music Center at Strathmore

Two of today’s most celebrated artists unite for a celebration 250 years in the making.

Violin superstar Midori and “master colorist and . . . great communicator” (Seattle Times) Jean-Yves Thibaudet team up for their first Washington Performing Arts appearances in more than a decade to commemorate Beethoven’s 250th birthday year. Anchored by the exhilarating “Kreutzer,” which, in the Washington Post’s words, “[has drawn] more out of Midori than mere virtuosity,” the all-Beethoven recital promises to reveal how even mainstays of the canon can reveal fresh nuances and kindle powerful emotions in the hands of two master performers.

This performance is made possible through the generous support of the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation.

National Philharmonic: 10th Year! Brian Ganz Chopin—The Growth of Genius @ The Music Center at Strathmore
Feb 1 @ 8:00 pm
National Philharmonic: 10th Year! Brian Ganz Chopin—The Growth of Genius @ The Music Center at Strathmore |  |  |

Join pianist extraordinaire Brian Ganz as he celebrates the 10th year in his monumental quest to perform the complete works of the great Romantic composer Frédéric Chopin. Ganz explores early waltzes, polonaises, nocturnes and marches to demonstrate the seed of Chopin’s genius, followed by mature examples of the same genres: Chopin’s genius in full bloom. Featured will be masterpieces such as the great Polonaise-Fantaisie, the Funeral March, the brilliant Waltzes, Op. 34 and the gloriously expressive Nocturnes, Op. 27, along with the surprisingly engaging youthful efforts that made them possible.

“There isn’t much about Chopin that Brian Ganz doesn’t know. His delight and wonder in this music seem to grow, apparently without bounds, as time goes on.” — The Washington Post

Mount Vernon Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra
When Bach Met Bloch

Sunday, February 2, 2020
11:00 AM (Family/Kids Concert)
2:00 PM (Chamber Music Concert)
The Bender JCC is pleased to continue our partnership with the Mount Vernon Virtuosi to present exciting FREE chamber orchestra programs in the Kreeger Theater for their 2019-2020 season. Peabody Conservatory cello faculty artist Amit Peled has established this chamber orchestra in 2018 to nurture, train and support local graduate music students during their auditions period, offering concerts all across Maryland.

This season the Mount Vernon Virtuosi will perform TWO programs on each of five Sundays. We are thrilled to include a 45-minute morning family concert along with the afternoon concert for adults.

Amit Peled, father of three, says about these special family concerts: “The idea is to have the kids and their families join us on stage for a presentation of 45 minutes. I envision them sitting all around us, participating in the music making, and we truly hope to ignite in them the same love, joy, and excitement we feel while performing.”

They will present a special concert of the Bach Cello Suites along with selections from Ernest Bloch’sFrom Jewish Life.

FREE but Registration required. benderjccgw.org/concerts
