Chamber Music by the Sea

 The Worcester County Education Foundation introduces Chamber Music By the Sea, a benefit for education. If you are craving an intimate, up-close-and-personal-with-the-musicians concert experience, we've got just the events for you.

This year, a group of five internationally renowned musicians will be offering two public concerts and two house concerts. The musicians include international solo artists who play with major orchestras around the world. The artists for 2018 are Vivki Powell, viola; Anthony McGill, clarinet; Elena Urioste, violin; Tom Poster, piano; Bella Hristova, violin; and Guy Johnston, cello. 

The public concerts will be held at the Buckingham Presbyterian Church in Berlin on Friday, August 17th and at the All Hallows Episcopal Church in Snow Hill on Sunday, August 19th.  Both concerts begin at 7:00 pm. Ticket prices are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for students. Tickets for the public concerts are available at all branch offices of Taylor Bank and the Bank of Ocean City, West Ocean City and Ocean Pines Branches. Also, tickets for the public concerts will be available at the door.

In addition, if you are seeking a more intimate experience, two house concerts will take place on August 15th in South Point and August 14th in Snow Hill. At the house concerts, the musicians will play one-hour programs in two gorgeous homes in Snow Hill and South Point. Nibbles and sips will be offered, the music will be interspersed with chatting from the musicians, and there will be ample time to mingle and get to know everyone afterwards. It's a warm, wonderful experience for all involved, and (truth be told) it's how chamber music was meant to be played --in someone's personal "chamber"! A limited number of tickets are available for the house concerts. Ticket price for the house concert which includes nibbles, dessert, and wine is $125.00 per person and is a tax deductible donation to the Worcester County Education Foundation. House concert reservations for tickets can be made at the Bishop Stock’s Gallery in Snow Hill or by contacting Melissa Reid (443-365-0014) or Hope Palmer (443-944-5780).

Chamber Music by the Sea is sponsored by the Worcester County Education Foundation (WCEF), a 501(c) 3 non-profit. The WCEF is a group of parents, teachers and business leaders committed to establishing a pro-active partnership between the community and the public school system by linking community resources with the educational needs of its students to provide an equal opportunity for all students to succeed. All proceeds from the Chamber Music by the Sea concert series will be used to provide scholarships to students pursuing a career in the visual and performing arts. All contributions to the events are tax deductable.
