These programs will also be repeated at the Church of Christ in Brockton on the last two Sundays in June at 3 p.m. 
Our first program at the Millis library on June 21, will include the Tango “El Choclo” by A Villoldo, arranged for violin, viola and double bass, the Concertino opus 42 for solo violin and strings by M. Weinberg, and the Grande Sestetto Concertante k 364 by Mozart which was originally Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante, for solo violin and solo viola with orchestra, now arranged by Christopher Hogwood for string sextet instead. 
Our second program on June 25, will have the Mozart Horn quintet k.407, the Grand Quintet for horn and strings by Anton Reicha, La Danza de la Noche, for string quartet by Jeff Smallman and the sextet for two horns and strings by Franz Danzi. 
We greatly thank the Millis Local Cultural Council and more for helping to support this. Both these concerts are free and open to the public.
