The Hunter is the place to be for pre-Valentine romance
The sixth season of “String Theory” at the Hunter Museum will present the classical stylings of pianist Gloria Chien and clarinetist Anthony McGill as they bring live chamber music to Chattanooga on Thursday.
The two well-known musicians will perform an evening of romantic compositions: Debussy’s “Premiere Rhapsodie,” Schumann’s “Romances Op. 94,” Berg’s “Four Pieces Op. 5,” and “Weber’s “Grand Duo Concertant Op. 48.”
McGill is the principal clarinetist for the New York Philharmonic and played for a decade as the clarinetist for the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. Chien has been described as a prodigy and made her first orchestral debut at the age of 16 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Since then, she has received many rewards and played many solo performances.
Chien founded String Theory in 2009 to bring together chamber musicians from around the world to perform at the Hunter.
