The Trinity Alps Chamber Players to Perform in Langlois

The Trinity Alps Chamber Players is a touring organization that brings professional classical musicians from around the world to present concerts in Northern California and Oregon. Founded in 2011, the group has presented over 200 free public concerts, featured dozens of musicians from across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and produced annual educational programs for youth and rural schools.

They will return to the Southern Oregon coast on Friday, March 23 at 7:00 pm, with a program at the charming and unique Langlois Cheese Factory.

This concert will feature cellist Charles Akert and pianist Ian Scarfe performing a program of mostly classical music. Mr. Akert has a long resume of chamber music competitions, awards, and festival appearances. He was a member of the Nexus String Quartet, a resident at Carnegie Mellon University, and is the cellist in the indie-rock band "The Family Crest". Pianist Ian Scarfe, also the director of the Trinity Alps Chamber Players, enjoys a busy career as a soloist and collaborator, traveling regularly across the United States and Europe.

The duo will present a lively and engaging program exploring music from across the centuries. Audiences will enjoy the musicians' stage-banter, as the duo will speak about the composers, the history of the music, and specific details to listen for in the performance. The program will be diverse and complex, featuring music from classical titan Ludwig van Beethoven, lyrical works from the Romantic era by Felix Mendelssohn and Edvard Grieg, shimmering colors from the French impressionists Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel, and a hypnotic and moving work by Arvo Part, "Fratres", inspired by the ancient chants of Gregorian monks.

Sharing the stage with Scarfe and Akert will be local special guests, with surprises up their sleeve! The program is free and open to the public, but all are encouraged to make a donation to support this deserving organization.
