Don't forget Resonance this weekend!
A great concert is ahead of us when Miles Hoffman performs in Chestertown on Feb. 17 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Church, Kent County.
Hoffman is the founder and violist of the American Chamber Players, with
whom he regularly tours the United States. However, he is equally — if not more — well known to radio listeners as the classical music commentator for National Public Radio’s Morning Edition news program. He is also the author of The NPR Classical Music Companion, a listening guide.
Pianist Reiko Uchida will accompany Hoffman in a program including works by Robert Schumann, Bach, Brahms and Chopin as part of the National Music Festival’s Resonance music series. Uchida has appeared often as a guest artist with Hoffman’s chamber group, and she has also collaborated with the Borromeo and the Tokyo String Quartets.
“Reiko and I are really looking forward to coming to Chestertown for the recital,” said Hoffman who played a concert here “many, many years ago” at Washington College. “I’ve been looking forward to coming back to town ever since, it’s such a beautiful town and this is a wonderful series and Reiko and are just delighted to have been asked to play on this series.”
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students with ID and children under 14. NMF 2019 Combination Pass holders are guaranteed admission to all of this season’s Resonance performances — and all ticketed events of the 2019 National Music Festival, June 2-15, which will include more than 35 concerts ranging from small ensembles to symphony orchestra with chorus, plus 200 free open rehearsals.
