Worcester Chamber Music Society to Celebrate 10th Anniversary

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

 

In celebration of their 10th Anniversary Season, the Worcester Chamber Music Society will be hosting a kick-off concert weekend as a means to thank everyone that helped the group reach the 10-year milestone.

The pair of concerts will run on two nights in September and will feature acclaimed Russian pianist, Sonya Ovrutsky Fensome (pictured below) and clarinetist, Julian Milkis along with nine music society members: Tracy Kraus, flute; Krista Buckland Reisner and Rohan Gregory, violins; Peter Sulski and Mark Berger, violas; David Russell, Joshua Gordon and Ariana Falk, celli; and William Ness, piano.

"Ten years is an amazing milestone for a small non-profit organization," said Kraus. "Music is a powerful connector to the community. We have cultivated a bond with our audiences and our students which gives us a sense of satisfaction in the work that we do."

WCMS began with four concerts and now run 15 concerts between July and September. The society has also created two education programs: Summer Music Camp, a tuition based chamber music camp for youth and adults, and Neighborhood Strings, a free inner-city strings program.

For the members of the society, there's plenty to look forward to next month. "We have not seen each other since July. Coming together again in September for our 10th Anniversary is exciting beyond words," said Kraus.

The first show will be held on Thursday, September 17 at 7:30 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Harvard. The second show will feature a pre-concert 10th Anniversary celebration and will take place on Saturday, September 19 at Tuckerman Hall in Worcester.

The evening on September 19 begins with an opening reception offering desserts and a cash bar for a special toast to Season 10. The reception is followed by a pre-concert talk with musicians on stage.
