InConcert Sierra: An imaginative 2019 lineup

INCONCERT SIERRA BEGINS THE new year with a world-renowned pianist, a unique combination of musicians working together, a popular string quartet, and a Grammy Award-winning organist.

Jan. 20: Marc-André Hamelin
Pianist Marc-André Hamelin is ranked among the elite of world pianists for his unrivaled blend of brilliant musicianship and stunning virtuosity in the great works of the established repertoire, as well as for his intrepid exploration of the rarities of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

Feb. 17: Ensemble Schumann: oboe, viola, piano
Selling out chamber halls all over the country, this colorful and unique combination of instruments brings together three outstanding artists: Thomas Gallant, oboe; Steve Larson, viola; and Sally Pinkas, piano. From Carnegie Hall to Lincoln Center, Ravinia to Tanglewood, audiences rave about this award-winning combination.

March 17: St. Lawrence String Quartet
Known for their impassioned performances, operatic lyricism, and bold risk-taking, the Quartet has built a glittering reputation throughout its quarter-century of performing. Champions of new works by great living composers, as well as masterworks from the classical canon, the St. Lawrence brings informed perspectives to its imaginative music-making, offering delights for all ears.

April 28: Paul Jacobs, organ
The only organist ever to have won a Grammy Award, Jacobs transfixes audiences, colleagues and critics alike with imaginative interpretations and charismatic stage presence. Jacobs has been an important influence in the revival of symphonic works featuring the organ, and he is a true innovator in the advocacy of organ repertoire. For tickets or more information, visit
