Mount Vernon Virtuosi at the Pratt Library
Baltimore-based Mount Vernon Virtuosi is an innovative chamber orchestra of exceptional young musicians who are in transition from their studies to a professional career. Founded by cellist, pedagogue, and conductor Amit Peled, the ensemble alternates between a free-of-charge concert season in several Baltimore area communities with events in Virginia, greater Washington DC, and beyond. The Mount Vernon Virtuosi regularly performs at three venues in Maryland – the Pratt Library in Baltimore, Spencerville Seventh-day Adventist Church in Silver Spring, and the Bender JCC in Rockville.
For their February concerts, MVV is featuring internationally-acclaimed flutist Marina Piccinini. Called "the Heifetz of the flute" by Gramophone, Ms. Piccinini is widely known for her technical prowess, magnetic stage presence and interpretive skills. This all-Mozart program also features violinist Nikita Broisevich as soloist in Mozart's Adagio for Violin and Orchestra. Program details are below:
