South Coast Chamber Music opens its December concert with one of Beethoven’s earliest Piano Trios in celebration of the 250th anniversary of his birth on December 16, 1770. Violist Anna Griffis will perform Augusta Read Thomas’s touching “Incantation,” a brief meditation on loss and hope, before bewitchment concludes with Dvorak’s scintillating Piano Quartet No 2. Welcome, winter light!
Entrancement will be recorded in the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s Harbor Gallery, overlooking New Bedford Harbor. This will be the inaugural performance of the Steinway piano, generously donated by Lisa Schmid Alvord and Joel Alvord.
Tickets are $10 per household. All ticketed patrons will receive an email on December 5 containing instructions and a private link for access on YouTube. The concert will premiere at 4pm but you can watch the concert any time (and as many times as) you like for 30 days. We recommend linking your phone, tablet or computer to your TV to enjoy the full visual-audio quality of the performance!
