The celebrated violinist Charles Haupt, who this season is ending his long tenure as Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra concertmaster, is launching a concert series called "A Musical Feast." He plans to include performances by local artists and some of the many distinguished friends with whom he has worked over the years.
The inaugural concert takes place at 8 p.m. Wednesday in the Kavinoky Theatre on the campus of D'Youville College. It will include music of Eugene Ysaye, Arnold Schoenberg, Benjamin Britten, Antonin Dvorak, Arnold Bax and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Haupt will be joined by violinist Charles Castleman, a professor at the Eastman School of Music; violist Jesse Levine, who played for nine years with the BPO and currently teaches at Yale University; pianist Claudia Hoca, and flutist and University at Buffalo professor Cheryl Gobbetti Hoffman.
Admission is $25. For information, call 829-7668.
