Music at the museum will fill the intimate Visitor Center Theater as a simple combination of instruments creates a layered musical conversation for guests to treasure. On Sunday, September 18 from 2:00PM– 4:00PM, Billings Farm & Museum, along with concert organizers David Green and Margaret Edwards, are pleased to present the Billings Farm Chamber Music concert.
The concert will feature violinist Jean Huang, violinist and violist Amy Galluzzo, and cellist Carol Ou. This small ensemble will bring their impressive breadth of experience and expertise to the stage. The concert program will include String Trio in B-flat D471 by Franz Schubert, Zapatos de Chincha (for violin and cello) by Gabriela Lena Frank, Sonata for Two Violins Op. 56 by Sergei Prokofiev, and Serenade for String Trio Op. 10 by Ernst von Dohnanyi.
For over fifteen years, David Green and Margaret Edwards of Barnard, Vermont, have brought distinctive cultural events and impressive musical talent to the heart of Woodstock, most recently with the North Universalist Chapel Chamber Music Concerts. Their original mission was to provide opportunities and a venue for accomplished musicians and professional performing artists. As a former treasurer of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Green forged connections and lifelong friendships within the classical music world. With Green and Edwards’ shared desire to enhance cultural offerings within the community and this area’s enthusiasm for classical music, the series quickly evolved. Consultant Victor Rosenbaum, renowned concert pianist and former director of the Longy School of Music and Chair of the New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) Piano Department, helped them bring a steady stream of top-tier musicians to Woodstock.
