Prescott Chamber players perform for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is coming up, this weekend to be more exact and there’s bound to be at least one or two mothers out there who are music lovers. One idea to celebrate with the mom with a musical taste is to take her to the Prescott Chamber Players Society Mother’s Day Concert.
A free concert at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 630 Park Ave, on Sunday, May 8, at 2 p.m., the concert features a variety of music chosen by the musicians. It ranges from pieces written in the 1600s to those written recently and the group has a tendency to present more obscure music not normally performed at concerts.
Chamber music is a form of classical music composed for a small group of instruments that could fit in a palace chamber or a large room, Prescott Chamber Players Society President Gay Renault wrote in a news release.
“This format is much more intimate in nature than a large orchestral or band concert,” Renault wrote. “The listener will be able to identify the sound of each instrument as it blends into the group.”
Music to be performed at the concert includes “Aria” by Jacques Ibert,” “Sonata in Fa Maggiore, Mvt. I. Allegro,” by Giusseppe Ferlendis, “Lasica, ch’io pianga” from “Rinaldo by Georg F. Handel,” “Trio for Piano, Flute and Cello, Mvt. IV Finale,” by Carl Maria von Weber, “Three Fantasy Dances, Mvt. III Vivace ritmico,” by Trevor Wilson, “Oblivion” by Astor Piazzolla,” and “Il Convegno, Allegro – Andante” by “Amilcare Ponchielli.”
The concert is the Prescott Chamber Players Society’s gift to the mothers in the community, Renault wrote.
“We encourage you to bring your children and introduce them to the instruments being played,” she wrote.
Refreshments will be served following the concert in the fellowship hall of the church.
