The Leonia Chamber Musicians Society, Inc. will present the Leonia Chamber Musicians in their first concert this season on November 3, 2013, celebrating the 40th anniversary year of chamber music concerts in Leonia.
The performance, featuring guest artists from the New York Philharmonic, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, begins at 7:30 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church, located at 150 Park Avenue in Leonia. The program features two of the great romantic works for chamber music, Franz Schubert’s Octet and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.
Headlining the first concert will be resident musicians Cynthia Phelps, Principal Violist of the New York Philharmonic; Ronald Thomas, Principal Cellist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra; and Alan R. Kay, Clarinetist and an Artistic Director of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
The Leonia Chamber Musicians will be joined by Cenovia Cummins and Roy Lewis, violins; Maggie Speier, viola; Daryl Goldberg, cello; Patricia Dougherty, bass; William J. Scribner, bassoon; and Richard Hagen, French horn. All the musicians perform in the major concert halls of New York City with well-known orchestras, such as American Ballet Theater, American Symphony Orchestra, Bronx Arts Ensemble, Queens Symphony, New York City Ballet, Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Pops.
The concert is open to the public. Tickets at the door are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors over 65, and students under 18 are admitted free.
