Chamber Music for the Mountain Empire



2020-21 Concert Season

Autumn Musicale: an online concert

Available starting: Friday, September 25, 2020 * 7:30pm


The Paramount Chamber Players opens its sixteenth season with its first online concert. 

The founder of the ensemble, Craig W. Combs will join Artistic Director, Katherine Benson to host the concert. 


Autumn Musicale is a program designed to bring a modicum of peace and healing to the audience during this time of social distancing. Pianist Katherine Benson and Cellist Cherylonda Fitzgerald share three works for cello and piano by Saint-SaŽns, Beethoven and Amy Beach. Violinist Jessica Ryou joins in to present Blochís soothing Three Nocturnes and Haydnís rousing Gypsy Rondo in Hungarian style.

Guest artist, cellist Joshua Kovac, who at thirteen has won many awards and performance opportunities, will perform Dvorakís stirring Silent Woods, a luscious tone poem with Katherine at the piano. Joshua will then join his father, violist David Kovac, to perform Beethovenís Eyeglass Duo. Rounding out the concert, the ensemble presents two of Anton Bruchís well known Eight Pieces, op. 83.
