The Omaha Chamber Music Society continues it’s Summer Concert Series this Sunday, June 21 with an event titled “Crossing the Atlantic.” This concert will feature violinist Mary Perkinson, cellist Greg Clinton, and pianist Stacie Haneline performing Schubert’s E-flat piano trio, one of just two trios he completed. Violist Thomas Kluge will then join the line-up for a second set of trios by Luigi Boccherini:

“Boccherini knew string instruments, knew the technique…play very, very well and very effectively,” Kluge said.

Also on this concert is a new work by Stephen Bouma. Kluge says that he had a conversation with the composer not long after witnessing the premiere of one of his other works.

“I asked Stephen if he’d written more music…inspired to do so by that conversation he had with me,” he said.

The final performance in the Summer Concert Series brings to Omaha the Moran Wind Quintet, made up of faculty at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln’s School of Music. The quintet will perform selections from Henri Brod, Alexander Zemlinsky, and the Nebraska premiere of “Dreams of the White Tiger” by Daniel Baldwin.

The quintet’s bassoonist, Jeffrey McCray, says they will also play a selection from award-winning performing artist Valery Coleman.

“A composer and flutist in New York, she founded the Imani Winds…one of the first pieces she wrote specifically for them,” McCray said.

The Omaha Chamber Music Society’s “Summer Concert Series” continues Sunday, June 21 with “Crossing the Atlantic,” followed by the Moran Quintet on Sunday, June 28. Both performances begin at 3 pm at First Central Congregational Church in Omaha. For tickets and more information, you can visit
