Ever wondered what a fish might sound like if it were a musical riff? How about a ghost? In the final program of our concert season, The Paramount Chamber Players presents two of the most imaginative and popular works in chamber music repertoire, Beethoven’s Ghost Trio and Schubert’s Trout Quintet. Joining the ensemble for these concerts are Sarah Kapps, cellist, from Atlanta and Maria Brotherston, string bass, from Colorado. To ease you into this fantastic voyage, the ensemble will also present the 2013 Paramount Chamber Players Award winner, Bethany Dawson performing the second cello part in the theme and variations from Anton Arensky’s Quartet in A minor for violin, viola and two cellos. Also appearing in this concert are Craig W. Combs, piano; George Figueroa, violin; Kimberly Ray, violin; Luis Casal, viola; and Cherylonda Fitzgerald, cello.
