BRAHM serves ‘A Musical Feast’
On Sunday, Sept. 22, at 3 p.m., Blowing Rock Art and History
Museum will present the inaugural concert of a new chamber music group in the High Country.
“A Musical Feast” brings together a variety of musicians with independent affiliations. Works to be performed are arias for soprano, flute and harpsichord by Handel and Vivaldi, a trio by Haydn for two flutes and cello, a string quartet by Beethoven and a touch of spice with a duo for flute and French horn by 20th century composer Jan Bach (no relation to the famous J.S. Bach).
Artistic director and flutist Akal Dev Sharonne said, “In the last year or two, I have been inspired by the number of terrific musicians in the High Country who are not often heard in concert. I got the idea of bringing us all together to do what we love so dearly — playing chamber music. It was gratifying to receive such an enthusiastic response from everyone I invited. I chose Blowing Rock as the venue for our inaugural concert so that we might add a classical music component to the month-long celebration of the arts.”
Tickets are $20. A wine and cheese reception after the concert will offer time to meet the performers in an intimate setting. For more information, call the museum at (828) 295-9099, extension 3006. BRAHM is located at 159 Chestnut St. in downtown Blowing Rock.
