Two MacArthur Foundation Fellows take over Spring Rennolds Series concerts
A recent change to VCU Music’s Mary Anne Rennolds Chamber Music Series concert brings two back-to-back performances by MacArthur Foundation Fellows this Spring. Alisa Weilerstein (cello) will perform in the March 29 Rennolds Series concert and a new addition to the series, Leila Josefowicz (violin), will perform in the April 12 Rennolds Series concert. Josefowicz, a world-renowned violinist and former Artist-in-Residence for The Philadelphia Orchestra, will bring her “supple technique” (New York Times) and “fantastic talent” (Gramophone) to Richmond.
Josefowicz has graciously agreed to perform that evening after the Mary Anne Rennolds Chamber Music Series program featuring Pamela Frank (violin), Nobuko Imai (viola), and Clemens Hagen (cello) scheduled for Saturday, April 12 at 8:00 p.m. was cancelled. Due to an unforeseen medical situation, Mr. Hagen is unable to tour.
Tickets already issued for the “Pamela Frank, Nobuko Imai, and Clemens Hagen” concert will be honored by the VCU Music Box Office for the Leila Josefowicz concert. No exchanges are needed.
