Opera House Arts’ (OHA) is proud to announce that Kneisel Hall young artists will offer a free concert on Thursday, July 24 at 7 p.m. at its Burnt Cove Community Church venue as part of its “Chamber at the Church” concert series. The program, featuring students from China, Poland, Korea, Taiwan, Belgium and the U.S. will consist of chamber music for piano and strings.
The Kneisel Hall chamber music program and concert series in Blue Hill dates its origins to 1902 when Franz Kneisel, founder of the first professional string quartet in American, began bringing students to his Maine vacation home for summer study. The program offers two summer sessions for 50 young artists annually, concentrating exclusively on chamber music for strings and piano with a focus on the cooperation and communication required to play in chamber music ensembles. The July 24 concert showcases the studies of several such ensembles.
