With heavy hearts and deep gratitude, we share that Robert Davidovici will be stepping down as curator and artistic director of The Broad Stage’s Beethoven, Bagels & Banter chamber music series after 10 seasons. April 3 will mark his final concert with the series.
Since 2013, Robert’s artistic vision, instrumental virtuosity, and indisputable charm have made our Sunday morning series a fan favorite. His gracious and disarming manner, both as the host and as the musical centerpiece of the series, has been the inspiration that attracted audiences and artists alike to share in performances of some of the most virtuosic, challenging, and celebrated works of the repertoire. We thank Robert for his extraordinary tenure.
On April 3, after the concert, we will host a special farewell gathering in honor of Robert’s passion and dedication to 10 seasons of chamber music at The Broad Stage. Ticket holders are invited to join us for a light lunch and celebration on the Plaza outside The Edye. Lunch is included with the price of your ticket and an RSVP is needed to ensure your spot at the luncheon. Please RSVP for the luncheon by clicking here.
We look forward to celebrating the amazing accomplishments of Robert Davidovici with you.
