Wylie House by Candlelight
5:00-8:00pm, Saturday, December 7th
Please join us for this holiday open house. We are looking forward to welcoming guests for a free evening of seasonal refreshments, live music, and games and crafts. Docents in period attire will be inviting visitors to experience the home by candlelight before visiting the education center next door for food and activities.
Saturday Afternoon String Quartets in the Parlor
3:00pm, Saturdays November 2nd and 16th
The Wylie House Museum has been added as a new venue for this fall’s Indiana University student string quartet chamber music series. The parlor-style living room of the home, much like the original settings for which chamber music was written, will serve as the venue for the chamber music performances.
Coached by the Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet, students will showcase their talents and virtuosity beyond the walls of the Jacobs School through their passion for chamber music. The performances will feature a variety of student string chamber ensembles coached by the Pacifica Quartet presenting a diverse selection of chamber music repertoire.
The quartet currently coaches 35 string chamber groups at the Jacobs School, many of which will perform in these community concerts. Among these groups will be the Wasmuth Quartet, formed last year at the Jacobs School, who won the silver medal at the 2013 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in May 2013 and made debut performances last spring at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and the Beethoven Haus in Bonn, Germany.
