Free Chamber Music Tuesdays Continue in Hendersonville

Erika Eckert and Margaret McDonald

HENDERSONVILLE — Brevard Music Center (BMC), in partnership with the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra, is pleased to announce the next 2017 Chamber Music Tuesdays concert as part of BMC’s ongoing Community Concert Series.

All Chamber Music Tuesdays concerts are presented at 12:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church (204 Sixth Ave. West) in downtown Hendersonville. Admission is free and concerts are open to the public.

On Tuesday, April 4, violist Erika Eckert and pianist Margaret McDonald, both colleagues on the faculty of the University of Colorado Boulder, will perform “Story Music.” Of local interest will be Jeffrey Nytch’s “Lyric Suite,” based on seven poems by Carl Sandburg.

“We always look forward to bringing excellent chamber music to the Hendersonville community,” said BMC President & CEO Mark Weinstein. “As we are known for our strong musical offerings in the summer, our free Community Concert Series is one way to keep the music playing all year long for all the people of Western North Carolina.”

On May 2, the Spring series concludes with BMC principal bassoonist and artist faculty member William Ludwig.
