The Canandaigua Lake Chamber Music Festival will present “Musical Heritage of Three Continents,” at two sites on successive days later this month. Violinist Tai Murray is the special guest artist.
Two performances are scheduled, each featuring works by Scott Joplin and other African American somposers, Maurice Ravel's “Sonata for violin and Cello,” and selections from Mozart's “Piano Quartet in G minor,” in honor of his 250th birthday year.
A Community Concert in Clifton Springs, with selections from the above program, will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 20 in the chapel at the Spa Apartments on East Main Street. Admission is $5 per person and seating is limited.
This format allows the musicians to share ideas about the music being performed and to answer questions from the audience. This concert is being sponsored in part by Clifton Springs Hospital and Clinic.
The Festival Concert in Canandaigua will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 21 at St. John's Episcopal Church on North Main Street. Admission is $15 and $10 for senior citizens and full-time students, and the full program will be performed.
Tickets for either performance are available by calling (800) 838-3006 or by visiting www.lakechambermusic.org. Tickets for the Canandaigua performance will be available at the door.
The Canandaigua Lake Chamber Music Festival is supported in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program, administered locally by Finger Lakes Arts Grant and Services Inc.
