Impromptu: North Shore Chamber Fest

Alessio Bax

Alessio Bax

Wednesday Impromptu, 2:00 pm


Acclaimed artists descend on the North Shore this week for a little chamber music and a lot of festivities. Concerts run Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Wednesday afternoon’s WFMT Impromptu anticipates the events with music and conversation with three of those visiting artists: pianist Alessio Bax, clarinetist Ilya Shterenberg, and conductor and pianist Andrew Litton.

WFMT will broadcast the concerts live on two of those music-filled evenings, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 pm.
