Florida Chamber Music Project to close season with Beethoven and Philip Glass May 5


The Florida Chamber Music Project (FCMP) will close out its 2018-19 season at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m., with music by Beethoven and Philip Glass. 

The performance will include Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 9 in C major, Op. 59, No. 3 and Glass’ Quartet No. 2. The concert is dedicated to the memory of Dinah Crystal Kossoff, a Jacksonville nonprofit leader.

“The Philip Glass quartet is a lyrical piece that exemplifies his pioneering minimalist compositions,” said Susan Pardue, artistic director of FCMP. “Beethoven’s heroic Opus 59, No. 3 will provide an exciting, uplifting finale to our season.”

FCMP was founded five years ago. Violist Susan Pardue serves as the artistic director. Joining her are violinists Patrice Evans, Anna Genest and Annie Hertler and cellist Laurie Casseday. All are members of the Jacksonville Symphony.

Dates for next season’s concerts will be announced soon. According to FCMP, plans call for music by Mendelsohn, Brahms, Mozart, Schumann and Beethoven to be played.

Tickets for the May 5 show may be purchased at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices, all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Join the FCMP after the concert for a reception. Follow Florida Chamber Music Project on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@FLChamberMusic). Visit them online at flchambermusic.org.
