The Leonia Chamber Musicians Society, Inc. will feature music of Beethoven on February 10, 2013, 7:30 p.m., at the Civil War Drill Hall Theatre, 130 Grand Avenue in Leonia, New Jersey. Tickets at the door are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors over 65, and students under 18 are free.
A significant work of the chamber music repertoire, the Beethoven String Quartet Op. 74, nicknamed the “Harp”, will be performed by Leonia residents and professional musicians Roy Lewis, violin; Maggie Speier, viola; Daryl Goldberg, cello, and guest artist Martin Agee, violin. They will be joined by Leonia Chamber Musicians’ members Patricia Dougherty, bass; Marsha Heller, oboe; Theresa Norris, flute; and William J. Scribner, bassoon to play the rarely heard music of American composer and Harvard trained Arthur Foote, and music composed by a Mozart contemporary, Luigi Gatti.
All the musicians perform in the major concert halls of New York City with well-known orchestras, such as American Ballet Theater, Bronx Arts Ensemble, Queens Symphony, Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Pops, in addition to teaching and performing throughout New Jersey. The concert pieces reflect heartwarming and heroic musical expression over a 150- year span.
Refreshments will be served after the concert, and the audience will have an opportunity to meet and greet the musicians. The Civil War Drill Hall Theatre is fully handicapped accessible.
The final concert of the season will be performed on Sunday, April 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm. at the Leonia United Methodist Church, 396 Broad Avenue in Leonia, New Jersey.
