45th Parallel Universe chamber music

fresh air

The Pansy Chang Quartet plays at a Riverdale home.

The smoke had cleared, the weather dried out, and it was once again time for a few of us to gather and play some chamber music with a small, distanced audience. It was a pleasure to enjoy the early autumn afternoon at the incredible garden of Susan and Andrew Franklin, playing Beethoven’s Op. 18 no. 3 and Dvorak’s F major ‘American’ quartets with friends Ron Blessinger, Fumino Ando, and Pansy Chang.

If you’d like to know about upcoming garden concerts by members of 45th Parallel Universe and friends, sign up for our weekly newsletter! There are just a few left, as the rainy season may begin at any time in our neck of the woods.

Coming up on Sunday, October 4th, husband and wife cello duo Trevor Fitzpatrick and Marilyn DeOliveira play a selection of duos, then Ann Medellin, Salena Walker, and Pansy Chang play Haydn trios. All in a lovely Irvington garden.
