  1. Addendum: Our Edgewood Collaborative Concert actually features FIVE Edgewood faculty: the four mentioned plus pianist Susan Goeres. Goeres, Burns, Otterson and guest cellist Michael Allen present two arias from Handel’s “Deutschen Arien”; and Burns, Otterson and Goeres come together for Camille Saint-Saens’ “Violons dans le soir.”

    Please join us for this FIRST EVER Edgewood collaborative event !
