The Musicians from Marlboro continue their tour at Greenwich Library on May 4.

The Friends Cole Concert Series welcomes back popular touring program Musicians from Marlboro on Sunday, May 4 at 4 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium.

Musicians from Marlboro tours are noted not only for their “joyous performances,” but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers, and for featuring programs of unusual chamber repertoire.

“Marlboro Music [is] a legendary classical-music institution that brings together younger and older players in pursuit of ideal chamber-music performances,” said Alex Ross in The New Yorker.

The program for the final east coast tour of the season is built around the 20th century masterpiece, the Lyric Suite by Berg, and also includes one of Haydn’s brilliant string quartets and Dvorjak’s Piano Quintet in A Major. Artists include Itamar Zorman and Robin Scott on violin, Samuel Rhodes on viola, Brook Speltz on cello and Cynthia Raim on piano.

Since 1951, Marlboro Music has played a leadership role in the development of chamber music worldwide, and in enriching the artistry and changing the lives of generations of exceptional musicians. The Musicians from Marlboro touring program, which was originally created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival, is now celebrating its 49th season. More information can be found at Marlboromusic.org.

The Friends Cole Concert Series is made possible through the support of the Sylvia and Leonard Marx Foundation and the Friends of Greenwich Library and is open to all at no charge. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.
