Local News

The Phelps Mansion Museum is launching its monthly chamber music season with a performance this Sunday.

A trio lead by violinist Uli Speth will perform three works.

First, a rhapsody for solo violin written in 2014 by Jessie Montgomery.

Second, pianist Tomoko Kanamaru will join Speth for Amy Beach’s Violin Sonata.

Then, cellist Alberto Parrini joins the others for Beethoven’s Archduke Piano Trio.

Speth, who is principal violinist and concert master for the Binghamton Philharmonic, says he loves performing at the Phelps.

“The acoustics are very nice here in the ballroom. By me just speaking here, you can pick up this little bit of reverb, nice amount of reverb, the right amount. And also just the warm and welcoming audience that we have every time here,” he said.

All three musicians are faculty members of the College of New Jersey.

Speth says Beach’s Violin Sonata is beautiful but rarely performed.

Showtime is 3:00 pm Sunday.

Tickets are $20, $15 for members and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door.

Call 722-4873 for reservations.
