ASMI CHAMBER ENSEMBLE, October 30, 2022
The concert began with our President, Susanna Watling, giving a warm and gracious welcome to everyone in the auditorium and to all who were watching virtually. It was the first concert of our 2022/2023 season and the beginning of our 81st year!
The ASMI Chamber Ensemble performed music from the classical, romantic and modern periods of music that included Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff and Schoenfeld.Their style of playing was seemingly flawless as they executed with precision, beauty of tone and technical wizardry the major works of the Piano Trio repertoire.
Invited and encouraged to attend were young people ages 11 to 17 and also refugees now living in Utica.
Ending the concert with the Mendelssohn Trio op. 66 thrilled the audience and they responded by giving the artists an immediate standing ovation and hearty applause. Our opening concert was truly memorable.
