Greetings MCMS Supporters:
We have another exciting concert season planned for you! Here’s what we have in store:
We open our season on Sunday October 25th with a piano trio (piano, violin & cello) from the University of Florida. I always love the intimacy of a trio combination. And piano makes it perfection!
After the winter holidays on Sunday January 24, 2016, we have a special treat for you: The Licorice Sticks from Orlando, an all clarinet orchestra using 10 types of standard and non-standard clarinet instruments. They have performed in Chicago, Louisiana, Texas and all over Florida. They play standard and popular classics, jazz, and more.
Popular soprano Karen Adair will sing for us on Sunday February 21, 2016. We have been trying to get Karen for a couple years now and glad to have her perform for us this season.
Our finale for the season will be on Sunday April 17, 2016. Brought back by popular demand will be “The Best of the Ocala Piano Conservatory (and Friends).” The “and Friends” part of the title refers to a few VERY talented youngsters from Gainesville that will be invited to be part of this concert. Also, OPC graduate Adrianna Barnard, who is now at UNF, will return with her percussion instruments – including marimba - for the concert.
As always, all our concerts are at Queen of Peace Catholic Church, 6455 SW Highway 200 in Ocala. They start at 3 p.m. and admission is free. We encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors to join us for a relaxing afternoon of beautiful music. Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss any of these great MCMS concerts! Remember, we are “Always exceptional, Always FREE”
Thank you so much for your continued support of the Marion Chamber Music Society. Donations are the sole funding source for the MCMS. We couldn’t exist without your generosity!
See you October 25th. Richard Hammes, President
