OCTOBER 12 AT HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY
The American Chamber Ensemble's “Music Old and New” 2008-2009
season-opening concert will take place on Sunday, October 12 at 3 p.m.
when the Music Department of Hofstra University presents them at the
University's Monroe Lecture Center Theater on California Avenue in
Hempstead, New York.
Featured pieces will include Vally Weigl’s New England Suite for
clarinet, cello and piano, the World Premieres of Julie Mandel’s Central
Park for clarinet, viola and piano and Edward Thomas’s Reflections for

This performance is part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days, an annual
global concert affirming the ideals of tolerance, friendship and our

birthday on October 10th.
