Musica Dolce will play at Towers April 22
Musica Dolce will welcome spring with a concert at the Narragansett Towers on Sunday, April 22, at 2 p.m. The quartet of Paulinka de Rochemont and Gigi Turgeon on violin, Diane Guillemette on viola, and Elizabeth Reardon on cello will open the concert with Alexander Borodin’s Quartet No. 2, composed in 1881.
The themes from the second and third movements of the quartet were used in the 1953 musical “Kismet,” and Borodin was posthumously awarded a Tony Award for the show. The orchestra will also play pieces from Franz Joseph Haydn and Franz Schubert.
The Musica Dolce chamber orchestra was founded in 1992 by a group of musicians from Rhode Island and Connecticut. Members of the orchestra play together in different configurations to perform a wide repertoire of classical music from the baroque period to the present.
General admission is $20, $10 for students. Children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets are available at the door.
