GOING FOR GOLD!
Originally slated for our 40th Anniversary Season, we’ve waited years (and then some!) for Sir András to perform ‘the Goldbergs’ on our stage. Originally written for harpsichord, the Goldberg Variations were first published in 1741 and are named after Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer of the work.
Going for Gold is a benefit concert; Sir András’s performance will help the VRS set the stage for its next big milestone… our 50th Anniversary Season in 2030. VRS patrons are individually sponsoring variations and we are deeply grateful for all the wonderful support!
