Visitors to Midsummer’s Music in SisterBay will hear the world premiere of a classical music piece this weekend. It’s written by Midsummer’s Music’s composer in residence, Jacob Beranek. “Partita melodica” will be part of the “Czech Life” performances. If you attend the concerts and think it sounds like something written by Anton Dvorak during his 1893 visit to Iowa, Beranek admits it was part of his inspiration.
Beranek himself will be heading to the Czech Republic in November. He’ll be performing at Prague Castle as part the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
