Hear. Here. Heights Arts
Isabel Trautwein, Artistic Director
Close Encounters, now in its 14th season, is celebrating 20 (!) years of Heights Arts with four unique afternoons of chamber music by the world’s finest local musicians performed as it was meant to be: up close and personal. However, due to current events, we have adjusted our regular programming and instead created a concert for the the celebration of Heights Arts’ 20th Birthday. Please join us on Sunday, October 4th (rain date October 11th) for a not too close encounter with Isabel Trautwein and Mari Soto, violins; Eric Wong, viola and Dane Johansen, cello – performing vivacious and uplifting works by Bohuslav Martinu and Felix Mendelssohn.
As our venues are intimate, tickets sell out early, so please reserve early! All venues are 100% handicapped accessible.
