The critically acclaimed Canta Libre Chamber Ensemble will return to perform a fall concert in the Vanderbilt Museum’s Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium on Saturday, November 2, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Sponsored by Northwell Health.
Tickets: $20 on-line; $25 at the door; and $15 for children 15 and younger.
“The music, along with the sky show on the planetarium dome, is designed to usher in celestial events for the fall,” said Sally Shorrock, founder, director, and flutist. “The beautiful imagery, customized for each piece, will complement the music for harp, clarinet, flute, and strings.”

Canta Libre, founded in 2002, is an ensemble of harp, flute and three strings. “This combination of instruments was extremely popular with French composers during the late 19th and early 20th centuries,” Shorrock said. “We specialize in this ravishing repertoire that brings the music and cultural atmosphere of turn-of-the-century Paris to audiences of the twenty-first century.”
