Ives Collective 
All in the Family

Stefan Hersh, violin; Roberta Freier, violin; Paul Hersh, viola; Susan Freier, viola; Stephen Harrison, cello; Alexander Hersh, cello

Frank Bridge String Sextet
Johannes Brahms String Sextet No. 2 in G major, Op. 36

The Ives Collective presents powerful live music experiences through fresh and informed interpretations of established masterworks and underappreciated gems. With core members and Artistic Co-Directors Susan Freier and Stephen Harrison, the Collective wants to share their joy in bringing together old friends and new in a variety of combinations to perform the widest possible spectrum of chamber music. For this concert, three generations of Hershes—Stefan, Paul and Alexander—join their spouses/siblings/in-laws in performances of string sextets by Frank Bridge and Johannes Brahms.
