The first live chamber music performance of the season happens this weekend at Trinity Episcopal Church in Wilmington.
The Serafin Ensemble will kick off the fall “Arts Season” on Sunday with Serafin & Friends.
"So for this performance we’ll have two of our Serafin roster artists - myself and another violinist Amos Fayette. We’ll also be joined by a guest - Jennifer Nicole Campbell - who is not only a wonderful collaborative pianist but also a composer,” said Kate Ransom, artistic director for the Serafin Ensemble.
She says they will be featuring some new works on the program - one by Campbell and one by her former teacher, David Auldon Brown.
Ransom says the repertoire will also include a piano and violin sonata from Beethoven, in a nod to his 250th birthday celebration year; a duo for two violins from 18th Century French composer and violinist, Jean-Marie Leclair; a "showy gem" of a solo violin work from Karol Lipinski and a violin and piano sonata by Danish composer Niels Gade.
Ransom says this Sunday’s concert is sold out It was capped at 50 seats because of the COVID-19 pandemic. You may still be able to hear the concert; they plan to record the show and post it on their website.
