Five Performances You Don’t Want to Miss

Concert Hour – Dominic Schaner
This Thursday at Concert Hour

It’s been awhile, too long, actually, since Early Music string enthusiast (and former Palomar student) Dominic Schaner has graced the Concert Hour stage. This time around, archlute and guitar in tow, Schaner presents a program entitled Heresy of the Free Spirit e il divino. Friends, this is a rare performance, and you don’t want to miss it! Step briskly then, toward the Performance Lab (D10) and witness as Schaner as he seeks to “divine the improvisatory and unbound (or free) nature of Early Music in light of the mystical tradition from which the program takes its title.” Doors open at 12:20!
