Sarah Bass, viola player for the Spokane Symphony, joins the group for Mozart’s String Quintet No. 4 in G Minor, written as the composer returned from a whirlwind tour of Europe yet struggled to find steady income back home in Vienna. After intermission, the Quartet performs Korngold’s String Quartet No. 2, written as the Jewish composer pondered his future in the changing political climate of 1930s Germany.

All seats for the concert are general admission and are available through or at the door. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, or free for persons under 18 and students with ID.
