Chestertown’s Resonance concert series will open its 2019-20 season with the Piazzolla Trio at 3 p.m. Oct. 27 at St. Paul’s Parish Hall, 7579 Sandy Bottom Road.
The group is named for the Argentinian composer acclaimed for single-handedly bringing the pulsing beat of his country’s native dance to an array of works for small ensembles.
The event kicks off the National Music Festival’s 10th anniversary season.
Members Elaine Kwon, piano; Gjilberta Lucaj, cello; and Anat Malkin Almani, violin have performed at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall in London, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, the United Nations, the Vatican and New York City’s Times Square.
Tickets to the Piazzolla Trio concert are $20 adults, $5 for students with ID and children younger than 14. A Resonance Pass — $100 — offers all six of a diverse musical lineup from October through April. The series pass saves $20 off the single-ticket price for the six concerts, $120.
For purchasers of a 2020 National Music Festival Combination Pass — on sale now — all six Resonance concerts are included as well as admission to the many ticketed performances during the festival, May 31-June 13.
The Resonance series will continue with the following concerts: Nov. 17, Omer String Quartet: Award-winning ensemble-in-residence at the University of Maryland; Jan. 12, Iona: Pan-Celtic music and dance from eight nations; Feb. 16, Cleveland Wind Trio: Works by Mozart, Canteloube and Villa-Lobo; March 22, Emily Daggett Smith: NMF Violin Mentor with Constantine Finehouse, piano; and April 26, Julia Mintzer: Mezzo-soprano, Washington National Opera, Semperoper Dresden.
