The program of short pieces by William Grant Still, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Aaron Copland, and others is inspired by the work of American impressionist Childe Hassam as well as several mid-20th-century artists associated with Black Mountain College and the Asheville Art Museum.
Docent-led tours will be available at 1:45 pm before each concert in the series. The tours, tailored to music lovers, link art in the Museum’s collection to that day's chamber music performance. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance by contacting Christine Molesky, (919) 664-6785. Tours are free; paid admission to ticketed exhibitions is required.
