On Sundays March 26, April 23, May 28, and June 25 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., the Three Village Chamber Players will be presenting performances at Emma Clark Library in the beautiful setting of the original 1892 library. The public is invited to stroll in, relax and listen to the music while taking in the gorgeous historic scenery (and perhaps even read their favorite novel).
There is no need to register, and anyone – resident or nonresident – is welcome to enjoy the program.
The April 23 performance features Anne Sophie Andersen (violin), Chelsea Wimmer (violin), and Kumhee Lee (cello).
Both an accomplished violinist and composer, Anne Sophie Andersen is an unusually diverse artist seeking to explore music from a variety of angles. One of her greatest passions is performing and promoting contemporary music, and she has collaborated with several composers in the US as well as her native region of Scandinavia. As a chamber musician, she has worked with the Cleveland Quartet, the Alban Berg quartet and the Emerson Quartet. Ms. Andersen recently completed a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in violin and a Master of Arts degree in composition from Stony Brook University, where she has served as undergraduate violin, chamber music and theory faculty. She also holds degrees from New England Conservatory, Malmo Academy of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus.
A dedicated chamber musician, Chelsea Wimmer is an active member of the internationally renowned harpsichordist Arthur Haas’ Baroque Players, the acclaimed Contemporary Chamber Players, and the Stony Brook Symphony Orchestra. She is also an active freelance violist in New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey, and has been privileged to perform extensively in Argentina and throughout Europe. An avid researcher, she is currently studying the Late Baroque music of Heinrich Biber, World War II-era music and the aesthetics of Paul Hindemith. She completed her MM in Viola Performance in 2016 at Stony Brook University, where she is currently pursuing her DMA in Viola Performance. She currently studies with Lawrence Dutton of the Emerson String Quartet and Nicholas Cords of the Silk Road Ensemble and Brooklyn Rider.
Kumhee Lee, a native of South Korea, has been a featured performer at the Sejong Arts Center, Youngsan Arts Center in South Korea, Symphony Space in New York, Hahn Hall in California, and at various venues throughout the US, Europe, Korea, Thailand, and China. Kumhee Lee served as principal cellist for the Absolute Classic Festival Orchestra. As an active chamber musician, she served as Artist in Residence at University of Minnesota at Morris. She performed with the ensemble at St. Cloud State University, MacPhail Center for Music in Minnesota, and Northwestern College in Iowa. Ms. Lee is currently on the faculty at the Stony Brook School. She is pursuing a doctoral degree at Stony Brook University, where she studies with Colin Carr, and her chamber music coaches have been the Emerson String Quartet, Christina Dahl, and Alan Kay.
