In-Person Performances with Livestream Option
Sewell, NJ (MAY 18, 2022) – Music at Bunker Hill announces its final Season 14 concert, the long-anticipated Trout Quintet, rescheduled after its cancellation in spring 2020. Schubert’s beloved Quintet in A major, D. 667 “Trout” will be performed by Eugene Drucker, violin; William Frampton, viola; Roberta Cooper, cello; Timothy Cobb, bass; and Gili Melamed-Lev, piano. This quintet is nicknamed “Trout” because movement four is a set of variations on Schubert’s earlier lied (German song) “Die Forelle.”
The concert is on June 12, 2022, at 3:00 pm.
New to the Music at Bunker Hill stage is Susannah Woodruff, mezzo-soprano, who will sing three of Beethoven’s Irish Songs. Woodruff will also sing Drucker’s “Of Troubled Times,” which puts Music at Bunker Hill in the unique position of presenting music by a living composer who will also be performing. Violinist Eugene Drucker, a founding member of the Grammy-winning Emerson String Quartet, is a performer, composer, and author.
Beethoven: Irish Songs
Drucker: Of Troubled Times
Beethoven: String Trio in G Major, Op. 9, no. 1
Schubert: Quintet in A major, D. 667 “Trout”
Music at Bunker Hill’s 2021-22 Season has featured celebrated classical musicians from near and far, with a return to indoor in-person concerts in October 2021. Performers have remarked how much they missed performing for in-person audiences when venues were shut down. The musicians feel a certain energy from a live audience that is missing when they perform for a camera.
In keeping with safety guidelines, capacity has been capped at 50%, and proof of vaccine and booster must be shown. Masks are required. A live stream will be available to all ticket holders for one week after the concert.
The concert will be held at Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church at 330 Greentree Road, Sewell, New Jersey, 08080. Phone (856) 494-6077. Tickets are $12 for students and $28 for adults and seniors.
This program is made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
