CLARKS SUMMIT — The final event of the Arts at First Presbyterian concert series will take place Sunday, May 19 at 4 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 300 School St. John Michael Vaida, violinist and violist, and members of the NEPA Chamber Music Society perform an afternoon of chamber music. This event will highlight the double-bass and cello in a concert featuring the Duo Cello e Basso.
Cofounders of Duo Cello e Basso are the husband and wife team, Pascale Delache-Feldman, double-bass, and Emmanuel Feldman, cello.
The afternoon will be filled with rarely performed works for double-bass and cello, including the Vaughn-Williams Piano Quintet, a relatively early work by Ralph Vaughn-Williams for piano, violin, viola, cello and double-bass. The duo will be joined by Hwaen Ch’uqi, piano; Amy Iwazumi, violin; and John Michael Vaida, viola for this selection.
Admission is free, and a free-will offering will be collected.
These activities are part of the Arts at First Presbyterian concert series at the church. This program receives support from the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Program (administered by the Pocono Arts Council), a Lackawanna County Arts & Cultural Grant and numerous individual donors.
