Picking up the Pieces

September 19, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

After six involuntary months of silence, the Chamber Music Society of Colombo looks forward to being reunited with its audiences later this month, in a series of concerts entitled ‘Picking up the Pieces’.

Led by music director Lakshman Joseph-de Saram, the CMSC’s string principals (plus flute), will perform a selection of shorter Baroque works by Corelli, Handel, and JS Bach, along with Beethoven arrangements of Bach and Albrechtsberger, and lesser-known offerings by Antonio Salieri and Francesco Durante.

The performances will take place at the Goethe-Institut Hall, Gregory’s Rd, at 7:30pm Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September, as well as a reprise of the entire program on Sunday 27th.

Patrons who had already purchased tickets for the 29th March 2020 concert can exchange them for one of the three concerts from the Goethe-Institut Library, Wednesday – Friday 10.00 am – 5.00 pm until Friday 11th September.

The remaining tickets will be available for purchase from the Security post from Saturday 12th September onwards.

The CMSC is especially grateful for the continued support of donors and benefactors at this time of uncertainty and flux. Thanks as always to our Creative Partner, the Goethe-Institut, and to our Premier Co-Partners for these events, the Embassy of Italy in Sri Lanka, and the Tokyo Cement Group.

These concerts are made possible in part by grants from two Premier Partners of the CMSC, The Embassy of Italy in Sri Lanka, and the Tokyo Cement Group.

Artistic Director, Lakshman Joseph-de Saram.
