You can hear new music as “New Music New College” presents Schoenberg’s Second String Quartet in concert on Saturday October 7th.  The work is a landmark of 20th century music, encompassing the extended tonality of late Romanticism and early modern atonality. The final two movements include a soprano, who sings, “I feel air of another planet.” The concert will feature the Amernet String Quartet with soprano Rachel Calloway at the Sainer Pavilion in Sarasota.  Information is online at
