JOYOUS STRINGS Fill the Air As Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society Returns For Its Third Season

The vibrant trio consists of Artistic Director Jia Kim (cello), Molly Carr (viola), and Siwoo Kim (violin).

The Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society comes back for the first time since the pandemic, live, in person, for a thrilling program of string trios.

The operatic, humorous, charming Finale of Mozart's Divertimento, Hungarian composer Dohnanyi's rich in character Serenade, and finally the brilliantly vigorous, soulful and energetic trio in G Major by Beethoven. This enticing and "joyous" program is the perfect way to reconnect with all of you and the company simply cannot wait to share this music with everyone in celebration of the reunion, and for the future of Spruce Peak Chamber Music Society!

The vibrant trio consisting of Artistic Director Jia Kim (cello), Molly Carr (viola), and Siwoo Kim (violin) will hold a public performance at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center on August 25th, 2021 at 7pm. The performance, with both in-person and livestream ticket options, is a precursor to the three week-long residencies planned for the third season, dates and performances to be announced at the August 25th show!
