If you are in the mood for discovery, in light of today’s holiday, there are several events taking place tonight that reveal the depth of talent in the area.
You can make a stop over at the Bruce Museum where the Chamber Players of the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra, see photo below, will be opening its new season. Tonight’s concert, “French Masters,” will open with John Baptiste Loeillet’s Trio Sonata for Violin, Cello and Piano in B Minor, Op. 5, No. 2.
As noted by Daniel Miller, principal cellist, Greenwich Symphony and ensemble player:
“This lovely work is rarely performed, yet it is a gem.”
The group will then move into Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F major, a piece the group has hoped to do for years. Romance for Violin and Piano in B-flat major, Op. 28, by Gabriel Fauré is on the program, too, along with the Piano Quartet in B- flat major, Op. 41 by Camille Saint-Saëns, which will close the program.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at One Museum Drive, Greenwich. The evening also features an informal wine and cheese reception. Tickets will be $25 for adults and $5 for students. For more information, call 203-622-6611 or 203 -622 2664, or visit greenwichsym.org/chamberplayers.
Meanwhile, in Stamford, George Bradt‘s musical, “The Man with the Glass Heart,” will be getting a concert reading at Curtain Call‘s first of this season’s Musical Mondays events. Bradt is the managing director of PrimeGenesis Executive Onboarding. An author, this is his first theatrical piece, according to the show organizers. The evening, which takes place at the Kweskin Theatre, will feature a cast of 10.
Tickets are $15. The theater is at 1349 Newfield Ave., Stamford. For information, call 203-329-8207 or visit www.curtaincallinc.com.
