The concert is free and open to all.
andPlay is committed to expanding the existing violin/viola duo repertoire through performing rarely heard works and commissioning emerging composers. This New York City-based duo of Maya Bennardo, violin, and Hannah Levinson, viola, formed in 2012 and has since commissioned and premiered over 25 new works. Recent seasons included performances at the NUNC!2 Conference at Northwestern University, the New Music Gathering, and the String Theories festival in New York City, as well as performances at venues including Roulette, The Stone, The DiMenna Center (NYC), The Record Company (Boston), the Toledo Museum of Art (Toledo, OH), and Short North Stage (Columbus, OH). Highlights of their 2017-18 season include a California tour and the premiere of new works by Leah Asher, Ravi Kittappa, Joel Rust, Bethany Younge, and Scott Wollschleger.
