Ramapo College Holds the Next Installment of the “Open Door Concert Series”

Ludwig van Beethoven

(MAHWAH, NJ) – On Wednesday, December 11, the next Open Door Concert Series event will take place at 7 p.m. in the York Room at the Birch Mansion. Pianist and Professor Itay Goren will perform the 15 Variations and Fugue for piano Op. 35, composed by Beethoven.

In Beethoven’s oeuvre one theme reoccurs throughout his compositions and is highly significant in his work, notably as the theme of the Finale of his Third Symphony, the “Eroica.” Professor Goren will explore the musical, cultural and historical aspects surrounding that theme in addition to performing the Piano Variations.

The event is open to the general public, with parking space available in the Faculty Lot.  Refreshments will be served after the program has concluded.


Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as fifth in the Best Regional Public Universities North category, Ramapo College of New Jersey is sometimes mistaken for a private college. This is, in part, due to its unique interdisciplinary academic structure, its size of approximately 6,000 students and its pastoral setting in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains on the New Jersey/New York border.

Established in 1969, Ramapo College offers bachelor's degrees in the arts, business, humanities, social sciences and the sciences, as well as in professional studies, which include nursing and social work. In addition, Ramapo College offers courses leading to teacher certification at the elementary and secondary levels. The College also offers eight graduate programs as well as articulated programs with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New York Chiropractic College, New York University College of Dentistry, SUNY State College of Optometry and New York College of Podiatric Medicine.
