Greenwich Symphony Chamber Players take stage

The Chamber Players of Greenwich Symphony will be exploring “treasure familiar and unknown” in their upcoming concerts in March.

They’ll be performing at Round Hill Community Church on Sunday, March 2 at 4:30 p.m. and again on Monday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bruce Museum. The program will feature works by Mozart, Mendelssohn and Raff. The composers of the first two works fall into the “familiar” category, while on the other hand, Joseph Joachim Raff remains unknown to much of the public.

Mr. Raff was once considered to be one of the foremost composers of the Romantic Era, on par with music luminaries Wagner and Liszt. He remained largely unknown for most of the twentieth century, but is now being brought back, as a new generation of performers, like the Chamber Players, reintroduce him to audiences who will discover the beauty and vitality of his music.

The concert program includes: Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major; Mendelssohn’s Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 2 in D Major and Raff’s Piano Quintet in A minor.

Following the performances will be a wine and cheese reception where the audience is invited to meet the musicians.

Tickets are $25 for adults; $5 for students and may be purchased at the door or reserved by calling 203-637-4725 or by visiting Greenwichsym.org/chamberplayers.

Round Hill Community Church is located 395 Round Hill Road. The Bruce Museum is located at One Museum Drive.
