Franz Schubert’s final work for chamber ensemble, Quintet for Strings in C major is universally acknowledged as one of the finest creations in all chamber music. This masterwork will be performed by members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra: Emmanuelle Boisvert (violin), Andrew Schast (violin), Pamela Askew (viola), Kari Nostbakken (cello), and Jeffery Hood (cello). To mark the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, FACP will program a special piece to commend the President’s life and his support of the arts.
