Two free concerts will be performed in Vassar College’s Villard Room this summer. At 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22, piano faculty member Thomas Sauer will perform works by Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Darius Milhaud and Thomas Adès. Sauer will be accompanied by Todd Palmer, clarinet; Grace Park, violin; Dov Scheindlin, viola; and Wolfram Koessel, cello. The concert program is mixed, featuring a solo, duo, trio and two quartets — something for everyone.

At 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29, Richard Wilson, professor of music, will perform with violinist Joseph Genauldi. Their concert will feature Beethoven and Mozart sonatas as well as an original work by Wilson, Three Interludes for Violin and Piano.

Admission is free. Both shows will be held in the Villard Room on the second floor of Main Building while the usual concert venue, Skinner Hall, is under renovation.

Individuals with disabilities requiring special accommodations must contact the Office of Campus Activities at least 48 hours in advance of an event, Mondays through Fridays, at 845-437-5370.
