Who doesn’t love the Bach Double Concerto?  And how can you top it with the soloists from the heart of the A2SO, Concertmaster Aaron Berofksy and Associate Concertmaster Kathryn Votapek, LIVE from Hill Auditorium.

As Herbert von Karajan said, “When you hear Mahler’s Fifth, you forget that time has passed. A great performance of the Fifth is a transforming experience.”

Violinist Aaron Berofsky has toured extensively throughout the United States and abroad, gaining wide recognition as a soloist and chamber musician. As soloist, he has performed with orchestras in the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain and Canada.

A member of the Chester String Quartet for 15 years, violinist and violist Kathryn Votapek maintains an active career as soloist and as guest artist at chamber music festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Central America.  She has participated in numerous commissioning projects and premieres and can be heard with the Chester Quartet on the Koch International Classics, New Albion, and Audio Ideas labels.
