The legendary Pro Arte Quartet, in continuous existence since 1911-1912, will present an evening of works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at the Ephraim Moravian Church on Thursday, May 9 at 7:30 pm.
Featuring David Perry, violin; Suzanne Beia, violin; Sally Chisholm, viola; and Parry Karp, violoncello, the Pro Arte Quartet will be joined by violist Allyson Fleck in this special event. Pro Arte never fails to delight audiences with classic string works like those of Mozart, an archetype of the Classical style. Their May 9 Door County concert performance will consist of the following;
Adagio and Fugue in C Minor, K. 546 (1788)
String Quartet in G Major, K. 387 (1782)
Allegro vivace assai
String Quintet in C Major, K. 515 (1787)
Tickets are priced at $25 for adults and $10 for students. Reservations are recommended, as the Pro Arte Concerts are always popular and often sold out events.
Midsummer’s Music Festival also provides audience members with an opportunity to meet these world renowned artists after the concert, sharing refreshments and conversation. The May 9 concert is the first of two opportunities to hear the Arte Quartet in Door County. A second appearance is scheduled for Tuesday, September 17 at Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor.
On Friday, June 7, Midsummer’s Music Festival will host the annual Gala Opening Night concert and reception with guest speakers, champagne and chocolate at Birch Creek, in Egg Harbor beginning at 7:30 pm.
