This week, Eastman at Washington Square kicks off its Thursday Lunchtime Concerts in the New Year with pianist Doug Hanson — also the accompanist with Genesee Chorale — and flutist Philip Nash. The half-hour recital focuses on 20th century selections, with illustrious composers Francis Poulenc and Sergei Prokofiev at the forefront of the program. In a Rochester classical music season that will feature everyone from Bach and Beethoven to Thelonious Monk and Elvis Presley, this small concert is a great opportunity to experience modern classical works in a relaxed chamber music setting.
Hanson and Nash will perform on Thursday, January 4, at First Universalist Church, 150 South Clinton Avenue. 12:15 p.m. Free. 274-1400; esm.rochester.edu.
