Chamber Music San Juans next concert of its silver anniversary season brings together a trio of CMSJ veterans for a concert brimming with ones, twos and threes… solos, duos and trios— for clarinet, cello and piano.

Joining clarinetist and Artistic Director Patricia Kostek at San Juan Community Theatre, Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m., will be pianist Bruce Vogt and cellist Rowena Hammill.

Appearing regularly in concert in Canada, Vogt has inspired audiences in England, the U.S., China, and Japan as well. Vogt will perform the magically beautiful “Images” in honor of the 150th anniversary of the birth of composer Claude Debussy, whose compositions influenced the development of jazz.

A native of Australia, Hammill has played on hundreds of film and television soundtracks. A former member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, she now divides her time between the Northwest and California.

Hammill, Vogt and Kostek will present several trio pieces, including what Kostek calls an “energetic and jazzy” Muczynski, and an “excitingly folksy” Glinka. Kostek will perform the rarely heard “Fantasy Pieces” by Danish composer Niels Gade.

Tickets: $26 adults, $13 student reserved, $5 student RUSH at the door. A donor has made free tickets to anyone needing financial assistance to attend a theatre event.
