Summer Dreams Chamber Music Concert featuring Debussy, Brahms, Gershwin, and more
artKitchen invites you to taste something a little different
Join us for an uplifting afternoon of chamber music and artwork. Classical duo Thomasine Berg (flute) and Bruce Vogt (piano) will present a dreamy selection of music including Debussy, Brahms, and Gershwin in a program created for the Museum. Vogt, a Canadian musician who concertizes extensively through Europe and Asia, will join Berg, a Boston-based flutist performing regularly in the Brockton area. What better way to spend a lazy summer day than in the cool galleries and our Great Room filled with music.
Tickets are $15 in advance (until 8.15.17), $20 at the door
($10 Members and $5 Children under 12).
Thomasine Berg earned a Master of Music in flute performance from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and has been a member of the Flint (Michigan) Symphony, the Conductor’s Symposia Orchestra of the Vienna (Austria) Conservatory, the Opera Festival Orchestra of Las Palmas, Canary Islands, and the Blue Hills Chamber Players in the Boston area, in addition to teaching flute and performing as a freelance musician. She took a mid-career detour into the world of newspapers, landing at the Boston Globe as editor of classical music and visual arts, and left the Globe in 2013 to get back to making music.
Pianist Bruce Vogt is active as a soloist and chamber musician based in Victoria, British Columbia, where he is a professor of piano and history of keyboard music at the University of Victoria. Working with performers from around
the world he has appeared regularly as a soloist in concerts within Canada, and he tours annually throughout Europe and Asia. His repertoire encompasses music from the sixteenth century to the present. In addition to having a special affinity for the music of Franz Liszt, he has performed on period instruments as well as commissioned and premiered a number of new works.
