This week’s concert featured Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 47, performed by Trio Voce with Yukiko Ogura. The concert was sponsored in part by the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation and was once again broadcast live by 98.7 WFMT on the radio and online.

On a beautiful Chicago evening, eager concertgoers enter St. James Cathedral as the doors open. The line for this week’s concert stretched around the corner from Wabash to Huron!
Concertgoers sampled fresh fruit, brownies and crackers with goat cheese, as well as selections of tea and wine at the pre-concert reception. Refreshments at this week’s reception were provided by Trader Joe’s and Argo Tea.
