Join Benjamin and the Sor Ensemble tonight to celebrate Beethoven's birthday! Wei He and Karen Shinozaki (violins), Emily Onderdonk and Rem Djemilev (violas), and Eugene Sor (cello) are consummate chamber musicians, friends, colleagues, and co-stars of the recent documentary "Freeway Philharmonic." Tonight they perform pieces celebrating the master's 238th birthday, including his seldom-performed but wonderful Viola Quintet.
