Summer Serenade

performed by the North Country Chamber Players

Saturday, August 3, 2024
Doors open at 3pm
Performance begins at 4pm 

The North Country Chamber Players perform Summer Serenade, in the historic Grand Ballroom of the Omni Mount Washington Resort. The earliest serenades were usually sung at night to express love. The tradition continued through the Baroque and Classical periods, but really reached its pinnacle with the sophisticated multi-movement works of the Romantic era performed for larger audiences. In Brahms’ Serenade in D, he channels Mozart, Haydn and Schubert, but never sets aside his own Romantic sensibilities. This expansive, jubilant, song-like, somber, stately and galloping piece is contrasted on the program by Carl Nielsen’s brief and humorous Serenata in vano.

The North Country Chamber Players make their way back to the North Country for this special performance weekend from Boston, Chicago, and New York. Recognized as one of New England’s finest musical ensembles for over forty-five years, the North Country Chamber Players combines the talents of principal players from internationally renowned orchestras and chamber groups. Their world-class performances of old and new classics in relaxed and comfortable settings have made the Chamber Players a fixture of northern New Hampshire’s cultural scene.

The North Country Chamber Players offers a "Pay-What-You-Wish" ticket pricing model to make their concerts accessible to everyone.

Recommended ticket price: $25 (payable at the door).

You are invited to attend the Annual Walter & Helen Shields Concert.

Helen and Walter Shields from Jamaica Estates, New York, spent several happy summers at Omni Mount Washington Resort until their deaths in 1989. Helen loved music with all her heart and had been a singer and pianist, as well as a mother of five. Walter was a renowned inventor of pharmaceutical machinery with eighty-two patents to his name. This wonderful musical performance reminds of us two wonderful people and parents.
