Lenape Chamber Ensemble opens its 43rd season


Lenape Chamber Ensemble returns for its 43rd concert season Oct. 13 and 15.

The first performance, supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts, starts at 8:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at Upper Black Eddy’s historic Upper Tinicum Lutheran Church, off Route 32, one mile north of the Frenchtown Bridge.

The program is repeated at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, at Delaware Valley University’s Life Sciences Building auditorium, 700 E. Butler Ave. (State Street exit off the Route 611 bypass), Doylestown.

All the Lenape favorite performers are back: violinists Cyrus Beroukhim and Emily Daggett-Smith; violist Danielle Farina, cellist Arash Amini, and pianist Marcantonio Barone.

Beethoven’s “String Quartet in A, opus 18 No. 5” begins the program, a work written as homage to Mozart, whom he admired greatly.
Daggett-Smith joins Barone in Grieg’s violin “Sonata No. 2 in G,” written in 1867 soon after the composer’s marriage to his beloved cousin, the singer Nina Hagerup.

For the final selection, Barone is joined by Beroukhim and Amini in Brahms’ “Piano Trio in C Major,” completed in 1882.

Tickets at $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, and $5 for children, will be available at the door, or by calling 610-294-9361.
