21st ANNUAL CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Ogunquit Performing Arts 21st Annual Chamber Music Festival includes Boston Chamber Music on Friday, June 5 and The Cascabel Piano Trio on Saturday, June 6
Saturday, June 6: Several years ago, on a winter evening over a few glasses of wine, three wildly overbooked Boston musicians formed CASCABEL TRIO. Naming themselves after a notoriously hot pepper seemed fitting, and they have been warming audiences ever since with their lyricism, virtuosity, and heat.
Concert pianist Janice Weber thrilled Ogunquit audiences with her stunning solo concert performance in November 2014. She returns on June 6th to Ogunquit with violinist Piotr Buczek and ‘cellist Timothy Roberts.
Mozart’s Trio No 4 in C Major, K548;
Mendelssohn’ Trio No 1 in d minor, Op 40;
Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres”; and Paul Schoenfield’s “Café Music”.
JANICE WEBER is a summa cum laude graduate of the Eastman School of Music. Following graduation she was twice a fellowship student at Tanglewood. She has appeared with the American Composers Orchestra, Boston Pops, Chautauqua Symphony, Hilton Head Symphony, New Hampshire Symphony, Sarajevo Philharmonic, Syracuse Symphony, and the Shenzhen Philharmonic. Her solo performances have been at the White House, Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Weill Hall, National Gallery of Art, Boston’s Symphony Hall, and the 92nd Street Y.
