09/12/2008: "Pianist & Cellist Featured in Saturday Concert"

ig_Renzi_Hammill-1 (40k image)Cleveland pianist Frances Renzi and Los Angeles-based cellist Rowena Hammill highlight the Chamber Music San Juans’ fall concert at the San Juan Community Theatre on Saturday, September 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Renzi has played throughout the United States as a soloist and with the orchestras of Dallas, Houston and Toledo, as well as in recitals in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C. Fanfare Magazine described her playing as “absolutely superb…crystal-like articulation, impeccable rhythmic precision….”

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Hammill is the Associate Principal Cellist of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra and has performed at festivals throughout the U.S. In addition to her classical music concerts, Hammill has appeared on stage alongside such actors as Denzel Washington (Inside Man) and Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford (What Lies Beneath) where she portrayed a cello instructor.

In Friday Harbor, Hammill and Renzi will join CMSJ favorites Ron and Roxanna Patterson and clarinetist/artistic director Patricia Kostek. Together, the ensemble will perform Fauré’s “Quartet for Piano and Strings,” the deeply moving and passionate and Brahms-like “Trio for Strings” by Ernst von Dohnni and the charming and virtuosic Beethoven Trio, Op.11. Rounding out this extraordinary concert will be the greatest Romantic sonata ever composed: the Sonata for violin by César Franck, transcribed for viola and performed by Roxanna Patterson.

Chamber Music San Juans is sponsored by Kings Market. Tickets are $23 for adults, $12 for student reserved, with $5 student RUSH available at the door. A private donor has made provision for free tickets to anyone needing financial assistance to attend a Theatre event.

The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one hour before each performance. Call 378-3210 for more information.
