Evermay Chamber is a dynamic new nine-person ensemble of world-renowned classical musicians assembled by the glamorous Tamaki Kawakubo, a violin virtuoso whose performance credits range from the Los Angeles Philharmonic to the Russian National Orchestra. At this exciting Strathmore event they'll play one of Tchaikovsky's rare chamber music pieces, the bold yet lilting sextet Souvenir de Florence, as well as the whimsical Saint-Saëns suite, The Carnival of the Animals. The latter piece was made famous when it accompanied a charming scene involving dancing flamingos in Disney's Fantasia. Learn More

I was at first dismayed that the concert was in a small education room at Strathmore, filled by families and their presumably musician but school-aged children. The piano playing, however, was professional and exquisite. I enjoyed it much more than I did the Chopin concert the week before in my $38 very distant seats in Strathmore proper.
