Concerts in the Barn is pleased to announce its sixth week of free chamber music concerts held in its iconic barn in Quilcene (7360 Center Road).
On Wednesday, Aug. 17, the featured guest artists are members of the Aletheia Piano Trio: Francesca dePasquale, violin; Juliette Herlin, cello; and, Fei-Fei, pianist.
The Aletheia Piano Trio will perform the following works:
• Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Trio Op. 1, No. 3
• Robert Schumann: Fantasiestücke, Op. 88
• Anton Dvorák: Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 (“Dumky”)
The farm opens to visitors at noon each concert day. At 1 p.m., the barn doors open so that barn patrons can reserve their seats on pews on the main floor or in the hay loft balcony.
The trio was formed in 2013 at the Juilliard School and quickly gave debut performances at the Rose Studio and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York and the Terrace Theater at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. They have performed as featured artists for the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Bravo! Vail music festival, Manhattan Chamber Players, Music@Menlo, Music in the Vineyards, Philadelphia Orchestra Chamber Music series, Colburn Chamber Music Society, Yellow Barn and many other festivals.
The trio debuted at Concerts in the Barn in 2017.
The ensemble is named for Aletheia, the Greek concept of sincerity, which celebrates their approach to realizing musical works, as well as their connection to each other and their audiences.
About the concerts
This and all other concerts are free to the public.
Concertgoers are encouraged to reserve their place in the barn or on the lawn in advance through TicketStripe; walk-up patrons will be seated in the barn according to remaining space.
(To access the TicketStripe site, select “Free Tickets Required” on the home page of www.concertsinthebarn.org or “Concert Reservations” under the Programs & Donors tab.)
Barn audience must wear masks during the performance.
Patrons are welcome to sit on the lawn and are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for seating. Amplifiers surround the barn so that outside patrons hear the performance wherever they choose to sit.
Concerts in the Barn now offers a farm animal tour each concert day. Tours start at 1:15 p.m. by the festival information kiosk prior to each concert. The tour includes visits to the farm’s new-born lambs and sheep flock, pygmy goats, rabbits, poultry, and resident horses. In case of overflow, an additional tour will take place at the conclusion of each concert.
Concertgoers are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch; the farm has picnic tables to accommodate all picnickers and sells cookies, ice cream, coffee, and flavored sparkling water on site.
Patrons can purchase cider from Finnriver Farm and Cidery and wines from Joe Euro’s The Wine Seller in the outside wine garden. Free bottled water also is available.
Families are warmly welcomed. This is a great opportunity to introduce children to chamber music while they explore the farm.
Patrons with mobility issues are encouraged to call the festival office at 360-732-0732 before the day of the concert to make sure their needs will be accommodated.
