Sunday Chamber Music Series

The first concert of St. George’s Sunday Chamber Music Series was a great event.  The Loudoun Quartet, all members of the Loudoun Symphony, brought their fine musicianship to a varied program of music from the Baroque to the 20th century.  As always, the musicians treated the fine acoustics of St. George’s sanctuary as a gift, playing with joy and sensitivity. 

The Loudoun Quartet presented a well balanced and audience friendly program, beginning with a quartet in c minor by Franz Anton Hoffmeister, a contemporary of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven.  Second  was a series of four dances by the British composer Gordon Jacob, followed by a movement from an opera by Gluck, “Dance of the Blessed Spirits”, assisted by series artistic directors Tina Kerchner on second flute and John Vreeland on harpsichord.  The program closed with an interesting quartet by 20th century composer Volkmar Andrea, feauturing some virtuostic playing.

On October 24 at 3 PM, the St. George Chamber Orchestra returns with a program of Stamitz, Vivaldi and Buxtehude.
