MARLBORO Marlboro's Music for a Sunday Afternoon - Paul Cohen and Sally Pinkas in Concert: This opening concert for 2019-2020 features chamber musicians Paul Cohen (cello) and Sally Pinkas (piano) presenting a program of Schumann, Rachmaninoff, and a J.S. Bach suite with "Five Inserts for Solo Cello" by Matan Rubinstein, Marlboro faculty member.

A member of the Samara Piano Quartet, Cohen has been playing professionally since 1982. Israeli-born pianist Sally Pinkas has been heard as soloist and chamber musician worldwide. She's a member of Ensemble Schumann, and collaborates frequently with the Adaskin String Trio, the Apple Hill String Quartet, and the UK-based Villiers Quartet. 3 p.m. Free.
