Mallarme Chamber Players Concert
St. Matthew’s is the perfect venue for a program of early music from Great Britain. From the baroque to early classical eras, the evening’s concert, British Baroque-ish, will include pieces by Handel, Henry Purcell, William Flackton and Andreas Lidel. It will feature the talents of Gail Ann Schroeder, viola da gamba; Suzanne Rousso, viola; Stephanie Vial, cello; and Barbara Weiss, harpsichord. Tickets ($25/ $5 children and students) are available from the Mallarme Chamber website: mallarmemusic.org and at the door. The Mallarmé Chamber Players are a flexible ensemble of professional musicians based in Durham, whose mission is to enrich the lives of the community through outstanding chamber music performance. The ensemble distinguishes itself in the community by its innovative educational programs, its commitment to creative collaboration with other organizations, its creation of significant new work and its dedication to serve a diverse population. The St. Matthew’s Faith and the Arts Series began in 2010 as a result of the church’s desire to be more intentional in their support of the arts and artists; to challenge and deepen faith through exposure to the arts; and to use sacred space as a setting for artistic expression. We look forward to hosting this excellent group and becoming a little Baroque-ish ourselves.
