On June 12, Wayne duMaine, trumpeter, will return to Greenwich.
Mr. duMaine will perform at the popular “Spring Musicale,” the much anticipated annual fundraiser hosted by The Chamber Players of the Greenwich Symphony.
The celebration will take place on Sunday, June 12 at 5:00pm in the auditorium of the Audubon Greenwich, 613 Riversville Rd.
DuMaine performed with the Chamber Players in their April concerts, after which the audience gave all the musicians a standing ovation. He will play once again pieces by Fasch, Gershwin and Martinů, the latter’s composition, La Revue de Cuisine, being a romp that musically depicts the mischievous antics and romances of the cookware “after hours.”
The Fasch is a Baroque work. Gershwin comes with a surprise, in that Mr. du Maine, with apparent ease, plays both the trumpet and piano at the same time.
Seven chamber players will also be on hand, playing short selections which will preview their 45th season in 2016-’17.
A festive champagne buffet will follow. If the weather is good, guests will be able to enjoy the beautiful outdoor terrace.
Invitations have been mailed already, but subject to availability, reservations can be made by calling (203) 637-4725. Tickets start at $100. If the event is successful, it will ensure that the Chamber Players will carry on for years to come.
