Chamber music group opens concert season at Tarentum church
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.
