Chautauqua Chamber Music: Resident Artist Series: The Athena Quartet

Saturday, July 20, 2019

Location Lenna Hall

Gate pass required. Purchase at our Main Gate Welcome Center, (716) 357-6250

Chautauqua School of Music faculty members Aaron Berofsky, violin, Kathryn Votapek, viola, and Arie Lipsky, cello/chair of Chautauqua Chamber Music, are joined by violinist Yehonatan Berick in a program of Ravel and Beethoven masterworks. Serving as one-half of a new collaboration between Chautauqua Chamber Music and the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle (CLSC), this is an especially noteworthy performance. The quartet’s repertoire has been selected specifically for its prominence in CLSC guest lecturer Aja Gabel’s debut novel, The Ensemble — a book based around the lives of a fictional professional string quartet. See Aja Gabel’s CLSC presentation at the Hall of Philosophy on Thursday July 18 at 3:30 p.m. to get a sneak preview of the Athena Quartet’s July 20 performance and learn more about this innovative collaboration.
