Four Greenwich musicians to perform pieces from the classical canon

When someone begins to spend a significant amount of time in Greenwich, he or she can easily be struck by the city's emphasis on culture. For a city of its size, Greenwich boasts a surprisingly high number of artistic groups, festivals and events, including several museums, a maritime aquarium and Audubon society. However, one of the city's artistic features stands out and could make owning luxury real estate in Greenwich even more desirable: the Greenwich Symphony.

Although it is a relatively small city, Greenwich is home to one of the region's most cherished orchestras. For more than half a century, the Greenwich Symphony has been providing locals and tourists with strong and moving performances of beloved works from the classical music canon.

Indeed, the musical group is filled with so many talented instrumentalists that many have begun performing on their own or in smaller groups. 

For example, four Symphony members - oboist Diane Lesser, bassoonist Mark Davies, violinist Krystof Witek and cellist Daniel Miller - have scheduled a performance at Greenwich's Dickerman Hollister Auditorium for January 26, 2013 at 8pm. Together, these performers - each of whom is the leader of their respective musical sections in the Greenwich Symphony - will perform for some of the city's most ardent musical supporters. Among the works the group is scheduled to play are compositions by Franz Joseph Haydn, Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Witold Lutoslawski.
