March Concert for the 50th Anniversary season of Musical Evenings

Join us to celebrate the 50th Anniversary season of Musical Evenings, a fundraising series supporting Goddard Riverside’s programs. We’re thrilled to have the Neubauer/McDermott Family Quartet performing on March 25th at 7 P.M. at our Bernie Wohl Center (647 Columbus Ave). This concert will feature substantial hors d’oeuvres at 7 P.M. prior to the music beginning at 8 P.M.

Seven years ago, the Neubauer/McDermott Family Quartet — Violist Paul Neubauer and Violinists Kerry McDermott, Oliver Neubauer, and Clara Neubauer — lit up Bernie Wohl Center. Oliver and Clara were pretty young then. Now they are about the same age as Paul and Kerry were when the NY Phil snapped them up. So it’s Family Night again, with two established stars and two young artists well on their way.
