Double Digits – 3rd Edition!
Friday, February 3
The Boston Conservatory at Berklee
Seully Hall (4th floor)

What can be more enjoyable than listening to a single Steinway piano? Listening to two Steinways at the same time!
Let us invite you to our concert on Friday night, where you would enjoy diverse, fiery and touching music. Janice Weber and I have been collaborating together on a number of concerts, and this is our third appearance at the Boston Conservatory.
Admission is free, and you would have to have a very serious reason to miss the opportunity to hear those masterpieces.
Come and join us for the concert and reception!
