    Ernest Bloch: Concerto Grosso No. 1  

    Completed in 1925, shortly before his departure from the Cleveland Institute of Music (of which he was the founder), Bloch wrote his Concerto Grosso No. 1 to demonstrate to his students how music could still be composed using only traditional forms. The finished work brims with the energy and vitality of the concerto grosso form while sparkling with the freshness of the 20th century.

    Tickets are $40. All proceeds to benefit Worcester Chamber Music Society.

    Information and tickets for this concert are available on the ensemble’s website, www.worcesterchambermusic.org, or by calling the office at (508) 926-8624.
