‘8 is Enough’

Matthew Reddin, Contributing writer

Frank Almond will wrap up the 10th anniversary season of Frankly Music with a pair of mesmerizing octets, considered some of the greatest in the canon. The works by Schubert and Mendelssohn will be performed by a collection of Almond’s colleagues, many from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, joined by violinist David Kim, the concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra. After a season of multiple triumphs and the terror of having the Lipinski Stradivarius stolen from him, Almond is sure to present a cathartic and powerful evening.

At Wisconsin Lutheran College, 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave., Wauwatosa. Tickets are $39, $10 for students. Go to franklymusic.org.
