For Immediate Release: First Wednesdays Music Series Introduces Eight Scaled Violins


Escondido, California — :

Experience the power of performance at our First Wednesdays music series, a free community music series that happens the first Wednesday of every month from September through June.

For the month of May, First Wednesdays showcases The Hutchins Consort on Wednesday, May 1 2019 starting at 6pm.

The Hutchins Consort plays on the eight scaled violins designed and built by luthier Dr. Carleen Hutchins.

Known for its eclectic programming, the group includes two visionary composers, who have written and arranged a vast anthology of works that embraces virtually every known musical genre.

Based in Southern California, the Hutchins Consort brings together a group of extraordinary players to tackle the challenge of adapting the techniques of traditional strings, as well as inventing new techniques, to master the instruments Dr. Hutchins created.

This ensemble of gifted musicians combines great works of virtually every musical genre — from the Renaissance to Rock.

Their performances are virtuosic, uninhibited, sometimes improvisational and always entertaining.

Tickets to the show are FREE and are handed out on a first-come, first-seated basis as you enter the venue. Doors open one hour prior to show time, and this year’s shows will be held in the Center’s Concert Hall starting at 6pm.

If you’d like to beat the line, reserved seats are also available for $12 ($10 for Center Members) and can be purchased below. Reserved seats must be purchased a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
