First concert on Sept. 20 with Juilliard String Quartet
The 23rd season of the Howland Chamber Music Circle begins on Sept. 20 with a performance by the Juilliard String Quartet. Four more string quartets will follow: the Daedalus Quartet, the Calidore String Quartet, the Shanghai Quartet and the Brentano String Quartet.
Two trios, the Horszowski Trio (violin, cello and piano) and the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio (piano, cello and clarinet), as well as a solo performance by the classical guitarist Jason Vieaux round out the season.
The Chamber Music Circle’s wintertime Piano Festival features return engagements by Gilles Vonsattel and Charlie Albright, and two newcomers to the series, Blair McMillen and Lise de la Salle.
All performances take place on Sundays at 4 p.m. at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St. in Beacon. The Victorian building allows chamber music to be heard in the intimate setting for which it was originally intended. All concerts are followed by a reception to meet the artists.
Adult series subscriptions of four to eight concerts are from $110 to $195, the four-concert piano series are $110, and three concerts for $80. Tickets to individual concerts are $30, and all student tickets are $10.
All series and ticket orders can be made through the HCMC website, howlandmusic.org; in writing to Howland Chamber Music Circle, P.O. Box 224, Chelsea, NY 12512-0224; or by calling 845-765-3012. HCMC’s website will also feature information and updates for the season and every concert.
