Paris may be sending us some sad pictures at this moment, but its music lives on. This Sunday, Mimi Stillman’s Dolce Suono Ensemble will devote an entire concert to the great tradition of French chamber music.

The unique sound of French wind music will be provided by Stillman’s flute and the expressive clarinet wielded by the principal clarinet of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Ricardo Morales. Three of Dolce Suono’s well-chosen regulars will add the colors and sonorities French composers paint with the strings. Dolce Suono’s multitalented pianist Charles Abramovic will switch between harpsichord and piano in a program that ranges from the Baroque to the present, with a premiere by University of Pennsylvania composer Anna Weesner.

The Dolce Suono Ensemble will present “The Lure of Paris” on Sunday, April 28, 2019, at 3pm at Old Pine Street Church, 412 Pine Street, Philadelphia. Tickets prices are: General $30, Senior $25, Student $10, and they’re available online, by calling (267) 252-1803, and at the door.
