Chamber Music Project to conclude season with Brahms, Schumann


Florida Chamber Music Project (FCMP) will end its 10th season on Sunday, June 4, with a program of Brahms and Schumann. Joining FCMP will be pianist Hyunsoon Whang. The concert will be played at the Beaches Museum Chapel, which is part of the Beaches Museum at 505 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach. 

Brahms Rhapsody in B minor, Opus 79, No. 1 and Rhapsody in G minor, Opus 79, No. 2 and Robert Schumann’s Quintet for Piano and Strings in E-flat Major, Op. 44 make up the program. The Schumann work is considered to be one of his finest compositions and a major work of 19th century chamber music. It revolutionized the music character of the piano quintet and established a Romantic-era genre.

“I’m delighted that Hyunsoon is joining us and indulging me by playing these pieces,” said Artistic Director Susan Pardue “These pieces are special to me from my childhood, and Hyunsoon learned to play them for us.”

Concert attendees are invited to meet the musicians and enjoy light refreshments after the performance.

Beaches Museum Chapel is wheelchair accessible and has free parking along Pablo Avenue near 4th Street North of Beach Boulevard. Tickets are $27 online and at the door. Student tickets are $10.

The Florida Chamber Music Project was founded 10 years ago by violist Susan Pardue. Joining her are violinists Patrice Evans, Siyu Zhang and Ann Hertler and cellist Laurie Casseday. All are members of the Jacksonville Symphony.
