Ellingwood Chapel

A note from Series organizer Jim Walsh:
The Ellingwood Chapel Concert Series is pleased to announce its Spring series of three concerts, one each in March, April and May. There will be an interlude in our schedule during which The Nahant Music Festival, founded by Nahanter Don Wilkinson will fill the month of June with music and song. This will be followed by a Fall series of Ellingwood Chapel Concerts to be announced.
 
The Spring concerts will feature the familiar faces of musicians of international stature in the midst of their careers, the return by young musicians who got their start here in Nahant a couple of years ago and have made music all over the world since and, finally, for the first time, a chamber orchestra of extraordinary talent, recently artist in residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, will perform music from many traditions over the centuries.

A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra
Music of Hindemith, Boccherini, Mozart and others
 
The renowned chamber orchestra A Far Cry will explore music from Mozart to Hindemith to Boccherini. This ensemble of some fifteen musicians, centered in Jamaica Plain, became a youtube sensation for their dramatic and youthful exuberance and were awarded resident artist status at the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum. The Nahant Historical Society has made special tickets available to Nahant students graduating from either the Johnson School or Swampscott High for this performance.


Friday May 1, 2015
Intimate Sonatas

Egle Jarkova, violin
Rui Urayama, piano
Sonatas by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and others
 
Two thirds of the Jamur Trio, Egle Jarkova and Rui Urayama will return for an intimate evening of works for piano and violin. This is music perfect for the acoustics of the Ellingwood Chapel. Both Ms. Jarkova and Ms. Urayama performed at the Ellingwood Chapel in 2012 while students at the Boston Conservatory. Since then they have played throughout Europe and Japan, with Ms. Urayama winning major piano competitions and becoming a pianist to watch in her native Japan while Vilnius is charmed by Ms. Jarkova.
