Chamber Music Festival
July 25, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
On Monday, July 25, at 7:30 PM, the Meeting House Chamber Music Festival will bring to a close a season widely seen as nothing short of superb. Guest artist Katie Lansdale will perform with the Festival’s founder, artistic director, and pianist Donald Enos in the comfortable air conditioned space of Holy Spirit Episcopal in Orleans. The event will conclude the Festival’s 48th summer season—a season where standing ovations have become the norm. The series features world renowned guest artists performing with top flight talent from Cape Cod in programs of classical and contemporary music from the pantheon of chamber music composers. For those not holding season tickets, single tickets ($25) may be purchased at the door. For more about this highly popular and long-running festival, please visit http://www.meetinghousemusic.org.
Violinist Katie Lansdale is a highly acclaimed soloist, chamber musician, and teacher who performs to enthusiastic audiences in the U.S. and internationally. She has given outstanding performances with many prestigious orchestras, including the National Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, the Austin Mozart Orchestra, and the New York Repertory Orchestra, as well as such concert series as the Phillips Collection, the Caramoor Series, and Lincoln Center’s Rose Room. In New York, where she founded the acclaimed Locrian new music group, Lansdale’s extensive chamber music concerts have included Mostly Mozart at Lincoln Center with Yo Yo Ma and Merkin Hall with the Twentieth Centuryists. She performs regularly in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall with the Festival Chamber Society. Lansdale is particularly known for her solo Bach performances, and her Bach CD was cited by American Record Guide as “one of the best recordings of this music.”
Pianist Donald Enos, a native Cape Codder, also holds the position of Wesley DeLacy Chair, Keyboards, with the Cape Symphony and is the resident pianist for the Chatham Chorale. He is also director of music at the South Dennis Congregational Church, where he often presents concerts on the church’s Snetzler Chamber Organ (1762), believed to be the oldest organ in continuous use in the United States. It is his exceptional musicianship and creativity that have made the Meeting House Chamber Music Festival the longest running music festival on Cape Cod.
