It Takes Two to Tango!

Jul 5, 2017

Buried dance treasures come to the surface for this year’s Cedar Valley Chamber Music Festival, entitled “Shall We Dance?” The festival’s artistic director, Hunter Capoccioni, writes, “In my mind, the ways in which music and dance overlap parallel the relationship of writing and language…Our theme this summer nods to dance and how it has shaped musical meaning through the ages.”

The Cedar Valley Chamber Music Festival’s 2017 Season is showcased with a live Performance Iowa broadcast in Iowa Public Radio’s Studio One! Hunter Capoccioni gives us an insider’s view. Members of the ensemble will perform Josef Suk’s String Quartet No. 1 in B Flat Major, Edwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for Flute, Viola, and Double Bass, and a movement from Dvorak's String Sextet, Op. 48. The concert series has sold out, but plenty of free seats are available to see the performance live in our studio on the third floor of the Communication Arts Building on the UNI Campus in Cedar Falls. Tune in or join us in person for IPR's live broadcast of the Cedar Valley Chamber Music Festival musicians as they invade IPR's Studio One on Monday, July 17th at noon.
