3rd Sunday of the Month

Next one: May 21st, 2017 /  3 pm

(sign up at: 2:45pm, rehearse on request with pianist)

 

Special Guests:

We are very excited to announce that our guest performers on Sunday, May 21st, 2017 will be cellist Christian N. Holleck & Friends: recorder player Gabrielle Ramsauer, and clarinetist Monika Woods.

CHRISTIAN HOLLECK loves chamber music and has attended numerous chamber music camps.

Whether a Debussy piano trio, a commissioned piece by local

composer Richard Winchell or a baroque Trio Sonata, chamber music allows for unique conversation and communication among equals.  

Christian chose the cello at age seven because he liked the sound and it was bigger than he was.

 

Christian studied at the Rivers Music School in Weston and later played with New England Conservatory Youth Orchestras, the Swarthmore College Symphony, Princeton University Orchestra and the Pontiac Oakland Symphony in Michigan.

He performs regularly with the Chatham Music Club and at St. Peter's

Lutheran Church where he serves as Co-Pastor with his wife Tiffany. Their daughters are studying flute, clarinet, and piano.

Location:

First Parish Brewster UU Church at the Brewster Meeting House (1969 Main Street on Rt. 6A, Brewster, MA)

 

Admission: $5 suggested donation 

 

An “Open Mic” is for popular music only, right? 

WRONG! 

 

We are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music, to help our community's musicians share their music with a friendly, supportive and appreciative audience.

 

Drawing from the informality of an open mic format we are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music. 

 

Are you a doctor with a classical horn habit, or an orchestra member who misses playing in small ensembles or a choir singer who would like his voice to be heard? Are you an aspiring young student who doesn't ever get a chance to play with a pianist, but would like to develop your performing skills? Or a composer eager to try out your newest work?

 

Dust off your flugelhorn, oil your keys, and come share your talent in an intimate and casual atmosphere.

 

Classical musicians of all ages and levels are welcome. Pianist on request is available to accompany you.

 

“Open Mic Classical” is brought to you by clarinetist Mónika Woods (winner of the Cape Symphony's 2013 Soloist Competition) and Robert Marcus representing First Parish Brewster, with Lucy Banner and Elizabeth Tipton as collaborative pianists.

 

 

Whether you are an amateur musician, performing artist, fan of classical music, volunteer, venue or business seeking to sponsor a cause, please contact us. 

 

Further information is available from Monika Woods klarinetista.mw@gmail.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Brewster Cultural Council, Harwich Cultural Council, and Orleans Cultural Council, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
