Essex Winter Series: A Stellar Concert Featuring Essex Octet

April 7 @ 3:00 am - 5:00 pm


Essex Winter Series’ 47th season closes on April 7 with a gathering of cream-of-the-crop performers – Ani Kavafian and Ida Kavafian, violins; Steven Tenenbom, viola; Peter Wiley, cello; Timothy Cobb, double bass; David Shifrin, clarinet; Frank Morelli, bassoon; and William Purvis, horn – who will showcase Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” and Schubert’s Octet in F Major, D. 803. These world-renowned musicians have all appeared on the EWS stage before, most recently at our BeethovenFest concert a few years ago. Their joy in playing together for that event resulted in the creation of this new group, Essex Octet, so named for performing together through Essex Winter Series. See them at Valley Regional High School.

Concerts begin at 3 pm and all seating is general admission. For tickets and information visit essexwinterseries.com or call 860-272-4572. Adult – $45 / Student (with ID) – $5. For all our venues, parking, entry and seating accessibility is available.

Mehler, CFP LLC, and Tower Laboratories. WSHU is the media sponsor and Masonicare at Chester Village is the piano sponsor.
