PREMIERES AT 5:00 PM TODAY
Concordia Chamber Players
at Nakashima Woodworks Studio
January 1, 2021
As we close out this extraordinarily unusual year, we are feeling ready for some fresh beginnings. With that in mind, Concordia would like to invite you to watch a premiere of a very special concert in New Year’s Day from the comfort of your home.
Recently filmed at Nakashima Woodworks Studio the concert features artistic director and cellist Michelle Djokic, along with violinist Alexi Kenney, performing a musical program which beautifully reflects the serenity and profound design aspects of the Nakashima art studio. Works by Thomas Morley, Pēteris Vasks, John Corigliano, J.S. Bach, Zoltán Kodály, Enescu, and Glière will be performed.
The video recording became available on our website starting at 1:00 pm, New Year’s Day, 2021. So find a quiet moment in your day, get cozy, settle in and enjoy the magical sounds of Concordia.

This film is free to the public, however, any small amount that you feel comfortable contributing towards our continuing efforts to bring chamber music to the public will be greatly appreciated.
This concert is partly underwritten by:
I would have to say I was stunned, in fact left quite breathless when I saw your performance at the Nakashima Studios. Having been to the studio and to your concerts at the Church, the combining of these were truly a work of art. That video needs to be seen by the entire art world as I am sure it would win many awards for its artistry.
