Schubert concert set for Sunday, April 23


Florida Chamber Music Project will perform an all-Franz Schubert program at its 3 p.m. April 23 concert at the Beaches Museum Chapel, which is part of the Beaches Museum at 505 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach. The concert is sponsored by Dr. John Pittari and family.

Schubert’s Quartettsatz, D. 703 and String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, D. 810 “Death and the Maiden” are considered to be pillars of the string quartet repertoire.

“These pieces are so much fun to play,” said Susan Pardue, artistic director. “For our 10th anniversary I wanted to program a concert that would be lots of fun for everyone and ‘Death and the Maiden’ is one of the most fun pieces to play that I know.”

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.
