Ramapo College to Host Second Open Door Concert Series

Concerts starting this month are free and open to the public.

Ramapo College's Open Door Concert Series is back for its second season, which the school announced will begin Feb. 19. The series of live concerts is meant to provide students and community members with a free opportunity to see classical music performances.

According to a release from Ramapo, locals can look forward to the following free concerts:
  • On Wednesday, February 19 at 7 p.m., the series will feature for the first time a woodwind recital and the York Room will be filled with the warm sounds of the oboe. Oboist Frederick Katzenberg and pianist Gary Klein will perform a program that will include music of the baroque, classical, and romantic periods, as well as the 20th century. Frederick and Gary have performed on radio and television in New York City and New Jersey, as well as at numerous universities and concert halls.
  • On Wednesday, March 5 at 7 p.m., the Gabriel Chamber Ensemble of Pennsylvania, celebrating their 25th season, will be joined by pianist and the series' director Itay Goren for an exciting program. Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 449 will be performed in an intimate setting with a string quartet, the same way Mozart himself performed it in house concerts in Vienna. Also on the program are Debussy's String Quartet and César Franck's mighty Quintet for Piano and Strings.  
  • On Wednesday, April 2 at 7 p.m., internationally known pianist and William Paterson University faculty member Frank Pavese will give a solo recital as part of a series of recitals in the metropolitan area. Mr. Pavese, who is known for his especially sonorous sound and imaginary interpretations, and who is the artistic director of the Hindemithon festival in William Paterson University now in its 13th season, will play Hindemith's In einer Nacht. The program will also include Ravel's Valses nobles et sentimentales and a selection of pieces by Chopin including the fourth Ballade.
