Essex Chamber Music Players Bring “Breath of Spring” to NECC
The Essex Chamber Music Players (ECMP) will present a concert titled “The Breath of Spring” on Sunday, April 23, at the Hartleb Technology Center on Northern Essex Community College’s Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott Street.
The performance begins at 2 p.m. and will feature Daniel J. Kennedy‘s “Trios No. 1 and 2,” and David Bennett Thomas’s “Contemplations: Five Songs on Anne Bradstreet.” Also featured will be “Trio,” written by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu.
Soprano Charlotte Russell, ECMP artistic director flutist Michael Finegold, cellist Sam Ou and pianist Constantine Finehouse will perform.
“The music selections have the freshness of spring, with a few April showers,” said Finegold.
General admission tickets are $15. NECC students with college IDs and children 8 to16 years old are free.
ECMP will donate 25 percent of the admission price to the Hadassah Associates Men’s Health Initiative, Alzheimer’s Research, at the Hadassah Medical Organization. Hadassah is part of an international effort to eradicate this disease.
