The Academy Chamber Ensemble will open its fifth season with a Sept. 23 concert in Central Presbyterian Church, 305 Allegheny St., Tarentum.

“The Merry, the Mysterious, and the Heroic,” featuring string quartets by Haydn, Shastokovich and Mendelssohn, will begin at 4 p.m.

The music series offers fine arts programming as part of the church’s mission to the community, according to a release. The concerts are free, and refreshments are served following the program.

The Academy Chamber Ensemble, led by artistic director Dr. Warren Davidson, is an “Ensemble-In-Residence” and comprises leading players from the Pittsburgh area, many of whom are faculty members at colleges and universities. Members hold advanced degrees from music programs such as the Eastman School of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

Programs focus on the classical music tradition, and can include musical rarities and contemporary works.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
