Four Kingston Chamber Music Festival artists, including Artistic Director Natalie Zhu, will perform a special concert featuring Dvořák’s beloved Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 87 as well as
works by Schubert and Mozart at the Jamestown Arts Center at 4:30 PM on Sunday, March 18th. We are pleased to have the opportunity to introduce the magic of the festival to new audiences and hope to entice those attending the March 18 to one or more of the summer concerts as well. This year’s festival runs from July 25 to August 5 and includes six subscription concerts plus a solo piano recital.
Natalie Zhu is the Artistic Director of the Kingston Chamber Music Festival. She has performed throughout North America, Europe, and China as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician. Ms. Zhu has performed in the United States with the Pacific Symphony, the Concerto Soloists Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the Astral Chamber Orchestra, the Bergen Philharmonic, and with the Colorado Philharmonic National Repertory Orchestra. Zhu is the recipient of both 2003 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award.
Melissa Reardon is the violist in the Grammy-nominated Enso String Quartet, and she is the only violist to win top prizes in consecutive HAMS International viola competitions, as well the Tourjee Award in 2002.
Sophie Shao, an award-winning cellist, makes her Kingston Chamber Music Festival debut with this special Jamestown Arts Center concert. Shao is an Avery Fisher Career Grant winner, and has won top prizes at the Rostropovich and Tchaikovsky competitions.
