Join us at The House of the Seven Gables on Saturday, April 9, for an intimate chamber music concert celebrating Gables’ founder, Caroline Emmerton, on her birthday month. Three of Boston’s premier musicians, members of the Handel and Haydn Society, will present a program of string trios composed by Bach and Mozart on period instruments from the 18th century.
A catered reception will precede the concert in the charming Hooper-Hathaway House (c. 1682) –a structure rescued from demolition by Emmerton in 1911. Two performances of this program are scheduled for the evening, each with a 50 guest limit. The first reception is at 2PM, with the concert at 3PM, and the second reception will begin at 5PM, concert at 6PM. Tickets are $100 for members, $125 for nonmembers.

Register here.

The Beacon String Trio:
Renée Hemsing, viola
Guy Fishman, cello
Susanna Ogata, violin
Born of the artists’ love and need of chamber music during the shutdown, the beacon string Trio expresses its commitment to the composer by performing on instruments of the composer’s period. In the best traditions of historically informed performance, the beacon presents invigorated, probing, and moving renditions of works by well-known masters, as well as unjustly neglected discoveries. Each member has achieved acclaim as an expert performer on period instruments and among them they have performed as members of Boston’s Handel and Haydn society and with Boston Baroque, Boston Early Music Festival, Arcadia Players, Connecticut Early Music Festival, el Mundo, and numerous other ensembles.
They have performed across the U.S. and in Canada, Europe, Russia, Scandinavia, and The Caribbean. They have recorded on multiple labels including CoRo, Olde Focus, Centaur, and Telarc, among others, and their work has been acclaimed in commentary found in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Gramophone, The Strad, fanfare, BBC Music, Early Music America, and the Boston Musical Intelligencer.
