The Mount Vernon Virtuosi present a program of works inspired by the holiday season. Their program will include a performance of Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 2 in D Major, performed by Jorge Giménez, a young cellist from Spain who is the winner of the cello competition sponsored by the Mount Vernon Virtuosi. The other works on the program include Corelli's Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 8 "Christmas" and Holst's St. Paul’s Suite. This concert promises to be a refreshing interlude, in a season of music often saturated with the same few tunes. Join us.
