Concertmaster Krystof Witek has promised a great show to end the season.

Join the Chamber Players of the Greenwich Symphony on “Cloud Nine— Winds and Strings Together” at their April 13 and April 14 concerts.

The musical group will be presenting nonets, a unique musical composition scored for nine instruments.

The audience will also hear a wind quintet and a sonata for strings. Not many composers wrote nonets, perhaps because of the blurred lines between chamber and symphonic sonorities and possibly because of the tremendous balancing and voicing challenges inherent in the genre.

“Our goal is to present as many facets of chamber music as possible. What is interesting to me in this particular program is the juxtaposition and sonic synthesis of strings and winds. This music provides a rare opportunity to experience the fusion in sound of two major orchestral families: strings and winds, including brass, represented by the chamber music-friendly French horn. You will hear chamber music crossing a boundary into the experience of a full symphony orchestra,” said Krystof Witek, concertmaster of the Greenwich Symphony.

The Sunday, April 13 concert will take place at 4 p.m. at the Round Hill Community Church. Round Hill Community Church is located at 395 Round Hill Road. The Monday, April 14, will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Bruce Museum.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $5 for students and include a wine and cheese reception with the musicians.
