The Concordia Chamber Players will kick off its tenth season with a benefit concert on October 15 at 3 PM at the Nakashima Studios made possible by the generosity of the Nakashima Foundation for Peace. “This will be far more than a benefit performance,” said Michelle Djokic, artistic director for Concordia. “This concert will present the debut of the Djokic Family Cellos,” she added.
Michelle Djokic, associate principal cellist for the San Francisco Symphony, is the founder and Artistic Director for Concordia over the past ten years. She will be featured with her brother, Pierre Djokic who is the assistant principal cellist for the Montreal Symphony and with her niece, Denise Djokic whose recent critically acclaimed recording “Folk Lore” has been honored with a Juno Award.
The unique concert event will include works by Bach, Beethoven and Boccherini. Tickets for the benefit concert are $150 and may be purchased by calling 215-297-5972. Seating at the Nakashima Studio is limited and reservations are required.
Concordia’s regular season will begin on November 19 at 3 PM in the Stephen Buck Theater at the New Hope-Solebury High School. The opening concert will feature Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Quartet for Oboe and Strings, Martinu’s Four Madrigals of Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon and Arthur Bliss’s Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet.
Tickets for the concert are $25. Children under the age of twelve years are always admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult ticket holder.
