Float into Spring with Music
Maestro Daniel Shulman announces the fifth season of remarkable chamber music at the Salem, N.Y. Community Courthouse’s Sunday Series.
Distinguished colleagues from regional faculties, some performers with the Sage Symphony and Berkshire Symphony among others, join for one remarkable spring concert each month in April, May and June. The opening performance in the elegant courtroom will be at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 27. Musicians include Melanie Dexter, Josh Rodriguez and Kaori Washiyama, violin; Cathy Schor, viola; Nathaniel Parke and Jonah Thomas, cello and Dan at the piano and with expert commentary. We’ll float into a program on the 27th of Schubert’s great Second Trio for piano, violin and cello. This crown jewel of the chamber literature was written in his last year, 1828, and played in the only concert the composer organized himself. Scheduled for May 18 are Trios for piano, violin and cello by Beethoven and Brahms and for June 8, music by Mozart, Schumann and Hugo Wolf’s ‘Italian Serenade’ for string quartet. Mark your calendar, and come be a part of a musical Salem spring. Tickets are $20 each or $45 for the series and may be reserved by calling 518-854-7053. This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralized Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
