DAYTON -- Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival features virtuoso clarinetist Kevin Schempf for a performance of Golijov's "The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind" for Klezmer Clarinet and String Quartet 7 p.m. June 16 at Liberty Theater in Dayton.
Blazing technique and characteristic "laughter through tears" describe this evocative work. Bassist, and Dayton native, Kevin Casseday of the Jacksonville Philharmonic (Florida) returns to Southeastern Washington to perform the "Dvorak Bass Quintet in G."
The work shines with Bohemian dance and folksong. For information and tickets, go to wwcmf.org.
