On March 10 & 11 the New Bedford Symphony’s South Coast Chamber Series continues its season with “Chiaroscuro,” a concert featuring harmonies light, dark, and dazzling. Chamber musicians will offer three great works, each a stunningly different canvas of sound and emotion. Haydn’s elegant Piano Trio in F-sharp Minor is aural champagne, while Bartók’s last string quartet limns a melancholic quest ending in a question mark. Dvořák’s sunny A Major Piano Quintet transports us back to a world of joy, hope, and delight.
NBSO violinist EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks joins Chamber regulars Janice Weber, piano; Piotr Buczek, violin; Don Krishnaswami, viola; and Timothy Roberts, cello, for two weekend performances: Saturday, March 10, St. Gabriel’s Church, 124 Front Street, Marion, and Sunday, March 11, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 351 Elm Street, South Dartmouth. Both concerts will be at 4:00 pm. Tickets are $20 per person at the door or pre-purchase online at www.nbsymphony.org/season-subscriptions#chamber-tickets (bring your email receipt for admission).
