Chamber Music Palisades (CMP) will present an evening of flute, harp and strings at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, at St. Matthew’s Parish, 1031 Bienveneda Ave.
The evening will feature a preview of a new work by composer Bruce Broughton, “An Angel in the Attic: Concerto for Flute and Harp,” which was commissioned by the Santa Monica Symphony for its 75th anniversary season.
The concert will include the Los Angeles-based Lyris Quartet, and KUSC’s on-air host Alan Chapman will emcee the evening’s festivities.
“An Angel” will be performed by Susan Greenberg (flute), Cristina Montes Mateo (harp) and Broughton playing piano. The world premiere of the concerto with orchestra will take place with the Santa Monica Symphony in April.
The Lyris Quartet, which has been described by Mark Swed of the L.A. Times as “radiant…exquisite…and powerfully engaged,” will perform Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” String Quartet No. 9 in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3. Members of the quartet will also play excerpts from Jean Cras’ Quintet for harp, flute and strings.
Tickets are $35 and will be available at the door. Students with ID are admitted free. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.
This is Chamber Music Palisades 23rd consecutive season of presenting major chamber music experiences to Westside residents and presenting music education programs in local schools. For more information, please call (310) 463-4388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Website: cmpalisades.org
