Bay Chamber launches August concerts

Mon, 08/01/2022 - 3:00pm

    Bay Chamber Concerts and Music school launches week one of its August season with three concerts.

    On Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 5 p.m., Envision Chamber Music Workshop faculty members will perform a free concert at the Rockport Opera House. The program includes music by Piazzolla, Marquez, Mozart and more and features violinists Sophie and Josie Davis, violist Colin Wheatley, cellists Julia Henderson and Nora Willauer, bassist Nate Martin and pianist Margarita Rovenskaya.

    On Thursday, Aug. 4 at 7:30 p.m., pianist and 2022 Andrew Wolf Award recipient Michelle Cann will perform alongside the Aeolus Quartet at the Rockport Opera House. Their program includes music by Beethoven and Brahms. Cann is the Eleanor Sokoloff Chair in Piano Studies at the Curtis Institute of Music and “a compelling, sparkling virtuoso” (Boston Music Intelligencer).

    Acclaimed for both “high-octane” excitement (The Strad) and “dusky lyricism” (The New York Times), the Aeolus Quartet has been awarded prizes at nearly every major competition in the United States and has performed across the globe. The ensemble will perform a second concert together on Friday, Aug. 5 at 8:30 p.m. at Union Hall in Rockport featuring music by Florence Price, Amy Beach and more.
