Selected wind and string musicians of the world-famous Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra work overtime in the chamber music ensemble Camerata RCO. The Dutch ensemble will make its Penn State premiere in a concert featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A and Franz Schubert’s Octet in F Major at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24, in Schwab Auditorium.
Purchase tickets, which are $44 for an adult, $15 for a University Park student, and $34 for a person 18 and younger.
The Amsterdam-based Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra touts more than 1,000 recordings and serves as one of the main musical ensembles for productions of the Dutch National Opera. Camerata RCO, literally translated as a small chamber ensemble derived from the larger orchestra, was formed out of the musicians’ desire to share an expanded classical music repertoire in a more intimate setting.
