Chamber Music Amici and the Delgani String Quartet are set to open Amici's 2018/2019 season with two beautiful pieces. Guests artists Eric Alterman, Wyatt True, Kim Uwate, Jannie Wei and Pilar Bradshaw will accompany Amici's core group of musicians to play Arensky's String Quartet No 2 In A Minor, Op. 35 and Mendelssohn's Octet Op. 20.
Chamber Music Amici was founded in 2009 when five classical musicians joined forces to play both widely-known and less-known works, thoughtfully interpreted by core and guest musicians. The musicians spend weeks preparing for each concert at the Richard E. Wildish Community Theater, and the group was in fact the first resident company and continues to be a core staple of the Wildish Theater. Today's core musicians are Jessica Lambert (viola/violin), Lillie Manis (viola/violin), Steven Pologe (cello) and Sharon Schuman (violin).
