Vashon Chamber Music plays Shostakovich
Vashon Chamber Music and Vashon Allied Arts have joined forces to bring Club Shostakovich to the Blue Heron at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
Known as the roaming Seattle chamber music series, Club Shostakovich has brought composer Shostakovich’s 15-string quartets to Seattle-area venues over the past two years. From the city’s Royal Room to Kenyon Hall, Temple Beth Am to the Q Cafe, Shostakovich’s intimate masterworks have been presented in chronological order.
Vashon Chamber Music is now bringing the concert in a club setting to Vashon. The evening will feature Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 11, along with a string quartet by Beethoven and a viola quintet by Mendelssohn. Trio Pardalote’s Victoria Parker will lead the Mendelssohn piece.
Adding to the evening’s entertainment will be the poetry of Mary Oliver, Jane Kenyon and Anna Akmatova read by Vashon Chamber Music cofounder Rowena Hammill.
Snacks provided by Vashon Chamber Music volunteers will be available, as will wine for purchase.
Tickets are $5 for students, $16 for VAA members and seniors and $20 for general audience. Tickets are available at VAA, Heron’s Nest or www.vashonalliedarts.org.
