Join Adirondack favorites the Trillium Chamber Players Sunday, June 5th at Keene Arts at 4:00 PM for a delightful afternoon of classical music for voice, viola and piano.  Violist Patricia McCarty, pianist Timothy Mount and soprano Amy Nelson will perform works ranging from Bach to Gershwin, including Brahms’ much beloved songs Longing at Rest and Cradle Song of the Virgin, Ferenc Farkas’ lively Rumanian Dances, and the lush, exotic songs of early 20th century American composer Charles Martin Loeffler, set to poems by Verlaine and Baudelaire.

Keene Arts will be adding additional concerts in June including a jazz piano trio at 4 p.m. on June 25. The trio consists of Gene Baker on piano, Matt Dunne on bass, and Mike Lewandowski on drums. The trio will perform the music of Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, and jazz standards from the 1940s through the 1970s.

The final performance of the Keene Arts Concert Series will include a different set of performers as part of the Trillium Chamber Players on Saturday, July 9 at 4 p.m.

Janice Kyle, oboe; Janine Scherline, clarinet; and Timothy Mount, piano perform a wide range of repertoire from the classics of Mozart and Schubert to edgy new repertoire by the likes of Reena Esmail and Oscar Navarro.

Trillium often collaborates with artists such as former Boston Symphony assistant principal violist, Patricia McCarty; Marilyn Reynolds, longtime violinist with the Orchestra of St Lukes; Metropolitan Opera finalist, Amy Nelson; Robin Cameron-Phillips; and freelance ’cellist, Brian Donat.

The acoustics at Keene Arts, located at 10881 State Route 73, are ideal for small ensembles and the surrounding art provides a tranquil and inspiring atmosphere for guests.

 Keene Arts represents a number of artists who all have a special connection to the Adirondacks that is represented in their work.  In addition to these artists, Keene Arts has been fortunate to exhibit a broad selection of additional artists in their summer exhibits.
