Anna Polonsky & Orion Weiss, Piano Four-hands
The “constantly captivating” (Washington Post) Anna Polonsky returns to Mt. Gretna to share the ivories with virtuoso husband Orion Weiss. “(W)e are particularly good at playing four-hand works because of how much we like each other. We never mind sitting so close to each other… and bumping elbows all the time.”
In recognition of Mt. Gretna’s 125th anniversary, Anna and Orion’s program will include works by Schumann and Chopin from 1892’s first ever Mt. Gretna Chautauqua program.
