Is there any better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than listening to great classical chamber music performed by fantastic musicians— who are also donating their talents on behalf of a humanitarian cause? On Sunday, April 19 beginning at 3:00 pm in the Meeting House of First Church Oberlin, the Amici String Quartet will perform a benefit concert for Family Promise of Lorain County. The concert will include music by Beethoven and Schubert. The event is free and open to the public, although donations to support Family Promise are encouraged.
The Amici Quartet, Takako Masame and Miho Hashizume, violins, Lynne Ramsey, viola, and Ralph Curry, cello, all of whom are members of The Cleveland Orchestra, will begin the afternoon with Beethoven’s Quartet No. 2 in G major, op. 18. During intermission, Family Promise Executive Director Lois Pozega will speak about the agency’s important mission, and former clients will share their own inspirational stories about how the assistance they have received from the agency impacted their lives.
