Symphonic in scale and conductorless, Music at the Mission will shake the roof off Old Mission San Jose as the MAM Chamber Players take on this daring program of large scale chamber works. Dvoraks orchestral, Serenade for Strings in E Major, Mendelssohns masterpiece Octet in E-flat, Adams propulsive Shaking and Trembling from Shaker Loops, and Golijovs homage to the great tango composer Astor Piazzolla, Last Round (borrowed from the short story about boxing by Julio Cortázar) will knock you out!

DVORAK Serenade for Strings in E, op. 22
MENDELSSOHN Octet in E-Flat, op. 20
ADAMS "Shaking and Trembling" from Shaker Loops
GOLIJOV "Last Round" for double string quartet and double bass
