The Rocky River Chamber Music Society is nimble. When the artists originally scheduled for their season-closing concert were forced to cancel, they joined with their host venue, West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, to put together a substitute concert they’re calling “Chamber Music in the Pandemic.”
Of course, you won’t be able to come to the church on a Monday evening the way you usually do. You’ll be in your own home, logged onto YouTube or West Shore UU’s Facebook page. There you’ll be to hear five musicians — Cleveland Orchestra violist Lembi Veskimets, Cleveland Orchestra clarinetist Daniel McKelway; Baldwin Wallace assistant professor of saxophone and jazz Gabriel Pique; BW staff pianist Leah Frank; and freelance trumpet player Amanda Bekeny, an adjunct professor at The College of Wooster.
They’ll play music ranging from that of 17th-century English composer Henry Purcell to contemporary American composer Joseph Turrin, with stops in the 19th/early 20th century with German composer Max Bruch and Italian composer Vittorio Monti, and 20th century American composer Paul Creston.
Like all Rocky River Chamber Music Society concerts, the online concert is free, although as always the appreciate your donations — now more than ever.
