The Waterford Concert Series has announced its 2016 performance schedule, which features opera stars, a dynamic string orchestra, outstanding pianists and a top woodwind quintet.
This will be the 22nd season for the concert series, but the first as an independent entity, as the nonprofit incorporated last year and ceased to act under the umbrella of the Waterford Foundation.
All performances are held on Sunday afternoons in the Waterford Old School, 40222 Fairfax Street. Subscription registration is open for the season, or concert goers may reserve for individual performances. A season subscription is $115 for adults or $70 for students. The concerts are free for those aged 12 and under who are accompanied by an adult.
The season opens March 13 with the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists from the Washington National Opera in recital with bass Soloman Howard and some rising stars. The first concert of the season is sponsored by Opera Friends of the Waterford Concert Series.
The season continues April 17 with a performance by A Far Cry, an 18-member chamber orchestra from Boston, founded in 2007.
May 22 features an annual favorite—performances by students from the Levine School of Music in “Best of Levine.”
Zépheros Winds, named for the Greek god of the west wind and called the finest wind virtuosi of their generation, performs Oct. 23.
The final concert of the season will be Nov. 13, featuring pianist Alon Goldstein, a currently much sought after performer.
