The Friday Morning Music Club (FMMC) will offer three free classical chamber music concerts at Riderwood in 2020. This is a group of amazingly accomplished musicians who perform, pro bono, at venues in the DC Metro area. One of their favorite audiences has always been at Riderwood, where we have been enthusiastically enjoying their concerts for many years. We are kicking off the year 2020 with a fantastic concert in the Chapel on Sunday, January 5, at 7:30 p.m. I am very excited about the program, which starts with Khachaturian’s Clarinet Trio, and continues with Dvorak’s lovely Piano Quintet. This is music which will absolutely captivate everyone, whether or not an experienced listener of chamber music.
We have equally exciting concerts lined up for Sunday evenings, March 1 and May 3. There is also the possibility of a FMMC-sponsored student competition recital here on a Saturday afternoon in the spring. Riderwood is so fortunate to have access to such valuable cultural resources.
