VAIL ” Lunch hour just got a lot more melodic.

Bravo Vail Valley Music Festival hosts a free music performance Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. at the Vail Interfaith Chapel. The performance, “Two by Eight,” is part of Bravo’s Casual Classics series of interactive chamber concerts and musical discussions.

Bravo Artistic Director and flutist Eugenia Zukerman hosts today’s performance and will moderate a conversation between the artists and the audience.

The concert features several string chamber musicians, including violinists Henry Gronnier, Rachel Barton Pine, Nina Bodnar and Stefan Milenkovich, violists Thomas Diener and Nokuthula Ngwenyama, and cellists Ani Aznavoorian and Eric Gaenslen.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Programming includes Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola No. 1 in B Major and Joachim Raff’s Octet for Strings in C Major. Mozart’s work treats the instruments equally while flaunting their differences, and Raff’s selection is a lyrical work highly influenced by Mendelssohn.

The Casual Classics series is part of Bravo’s Music Matters program, a program to increase community participation and interest in the arts by partnering with local organizations. For more information, visit
