Palm Beach Chamber Music Season '24


A Valentine's Eve Treat 

I was able to attend the second concert in the 25th Season, Whitehall, Flagler Museum Chamber Music Series. As in previous years I attend as the guest of the sponsor (photo above). After an early dinner in Palm Beach we enjoyed an incredible chamber music treat.  

The performance is in an intimates, small venue setting, as true chamber music is meant to be. The night's program include the listing of the all previous 25 years of concerts and I realized that I was at the first concert in 1999. These events are something I look forward to every year.

The evening's performance was by VIOLINIST MICHAEL SHAHAM AND PIANIST SHENG-YUAN KUAN.  The program included Brahms, Bach, and Waxman with several of the pieces being solo violin.  The performers bio: 

Michael Shaham is a talented, rising young artist who has been playing violin since the age of six and just recently won second prize in the Fritz Kreisler International Violin Competition. Since 2010, Michael participates and performs at the Keshet Eilon International Mastercourse as well as in the Chamber-Music and Young Gifted Violinists Programs of the Jerusalem Music Centre. In 2018 he was named a recipient of the Arkady Fomin Scholarship Fund.

After the concert all were treated to a Champaign Reception with the artist that also including chocolate dipped strawberries and  macaroons. A tradition for all of the 25 years I have attended.
