The Florida Chamber Music Project is proud to celebrate its sixth year of providing a wonderful repertoire of chamber music for the Northeast Florida region. Although performances by small groups of musicians date back several thousand years, chamber music as we know it today reached great heights beginning in the early 1600s and continues to thrive in popularity in the 21st century. Often described as music performed in an intimate setting by an ensemble of friends for an audience of friends; chamber music lives on today through our musicians providing enjoyment for listeners of all ages. One of the factors contributing to the unique nature of these performances is the rich repertoire featuring one musician on a part. Within each composition, the technical skills and musical expression of each player contributes to an intimate musical conversation among friends.
The 2018-2019 season features widely varied music for string quartet and the return of pianist Hyunsoon Whang, who will join FCMP for music by Schumann. Selections include quartets from Joseph Haydn to Grammy award winning Jennifer Higdon. The ensemble will also present an American concert featuring a quartet by Mark O’Connor and Dvorak’s “American Quartet”. The season concludes with Beethoven’s famous String Quartet Opus 59, No, 3. Join the Florida Chamber Music Project for a remarkable sixth season of the finest chamber music at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
