The last of this season’s free Kaleidoscope Concert series will conclude with Johannes, Robert, Clara, Florestan and Eusebius Wednesday, April 28 at 7:15 p.m. The piano quartets, Johannes Brahms’ in C minor and Robert Schumann’s in Eb, are two reasons why the Romantic era is still so popular.

Following the program you are cordially invited to meet and speak with the musicians. Coffee, provided courtesy of Starbucks, and light refreshments will be served. Funded by the Arcadia Public Library Foundation, the concert is free and no reservations are necessary.
