Sensual sounds, contemporary rhythms and harmonies from the Americas will fill the air in a program that features a quartet of soloists for the Brazilian Suite Retratos (Portraits). Fabio Oliveira solos on the magical sounds of the marimba with a Brazilian Regional group that includes a 4-string Cavaquinho, a 9-string Guitar, the Brazilian Pandeiro frame-drum, as well as a 9-piece string ensemble. The mood goes sultry and sentimental with a work by Tango king Astor Piazzolla. An adored string orchestra favorite of great melodic sweep and beauty, Dvorak's Serenade for Strings, steals your heart away.

Incisive rhythms, happy harmonies, musical musings and brilliant colors fill the air in a program that highlights Felix Mendelssohn's most celebrated works. These iconic pieces, though, trace a vast universe of emotion and inspiration, even as they bear Mendelssohn's stunningly distinctive imprint. Bay Atlantic Symphony and Cape May favorite violinist Qing Li returns in an impassioned take on the violin concerto.
