The Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State will conclude its three episode run of “Front Row: National,” the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s free online concert series beginning Nov. 19.

The event is part of the Center for the Performing Arts' “Up Close and Virtual” fall season.

“Summer Evenings IV,” which was recorded in August, will be available to stream for free from 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19 until 7:30 p.m. Nov. 23.

Co-directors David Finckel and Wu Han will introduce three performances including Francesco Geminiani’s Sonata in C Major for Cello and Continuo, Op. 5, No. 3, Joseph Haydn’s Quartet in F Major for Strings, Op. 50, No. 5, "The Dream” and Aaron Copland’s "Appalachian Spring Suite" for Ensemble.
