One of the leading chamber groups performing today, the Echo Award-winning Scharoun Ensemble Berlin features the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra's principal string and woodwind musicians. For this concert, these profoundly talented musicians will perform pieces written by Mozart and Beethoven, putting Alexander Bader's clarinet work on display. Septet, Op. 20 is one of Beethoven's most popular works and one of the finest septets ever written. The Scharoun Ensemble will also perform Mozart's Quintet for Clarinet in Strings, one of the composer's most beautiful chamber pieces. Learn More

Seats were last row balcony, but they were still great, not a bad seat in the house. Performance was overall pretty good. Don't expect Baryshnikov, but enjoyable nonetheless. Second half is better than the first, so don't leave at intermission!
This full-length, traditional production is choreographed and directed by Festival Ballet Theatre’s Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, and features a cast of professional dancers and more than 100 Southern California children.
