Chamber Music Palisades will celebrate Delores “Dee” Stevens’ career and her 90th birthday at its concert this Wednesday, January 15, at 8 p.m. at St. Matthew’s, 1031 Bienveneda.
The evening will feature presentations, special gifts, appearances and tributes from world-class artists who have performed with pianist Stevens over the decades.
KUSC’s on-air host, Alan Chapman, will emcee the festivities. Chapman has graciously been providing educational and entertaining information to audiences since CMP’s first series, 23 years ago.
Joining CMP Co-Artistic Directors Susan Greenberg (flute) and Stevens will be violinists Alyssa Park and Maria Newman; violas Scott Woolweaver and Scott Hosfeld; and cellist Timothy Loo.
Dee’s son, Paul Stevens (horn), will also join this lineup of phenomenal musicians.
The program will include selections from Beethoven’s String Trio in C minor, op. 9 no. 1; Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 3 in C minor, op. 60; local composer Adrienne Albert’s Remembrances for flute and piano, and a special mother-son performance of Françaix’s Canon in Octave for horn and piano.
Presenting major chamber music to Westside residents, Chamber Music Palisades remains active in the community and presents music education programs in a variety of local schools. (Contact: Susan Greenberg at (310) 463-4388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
