With all of the terrible events of the past 18 months, missing a birthday party normally would not be a big deal. However, last December the world missed out on celebrating the 250th birthday of the great Ludwig Van Beethoven, born on December 16, 1770. This milestone is significant enough that it needs to be observed, even if a little late.
Because his symphonies, piano concertos and other large scale works are so monumental and iconic, people often fail to fully appreciate Beethoven's more intimate compositions. While we don’t want to appear unappreciative of Beethoven’s magnificent symphonies, many scholars believe his chamber works to be his greatest accomplishment. This concert, originally scheduled for last year, features 2 Beethoven chamber works: his Grand Trio in C, op. 87, and his Allegro for a Musical Clock, op 33. The program also features music by friends and contemporaries of Beethoven.
The temperamental Beethoven had few lifelong friends. Anton Reicha was an exception. Like Beethoven, he was born in 1770, and also turned 250 last year. During his lifetime he was a popular and successful composer. We will perform Reicha’s Flute Trio in D. Other works that fit the historical scope of this concert include delightful trios by James Hook and François Devienne.
The Kemyndable Flute Trio is comprised of Amy Klein, Deborah Proulx and Kenneth Korn. We have enjoyed performing together for several years, as a chamber ensemble as well as with the SUNY Orange Symphonic Band, the Maybrook Wind Ensemble and the Party of 4 Quartet. The Kemyndable trio has played at a variety of local and charitable events, including the Warwick Valley Animal Shelter, the Finkelstein Memorial Library, Valley View Center, and the Warwick Farmers Market. We are delighted to be returning to Albert Wisner Library. The Kemyndable Trio hopes to continue to bring music to our community, supporting and performing for local civic and charitable organizations, and promoting a love of the arts through music.
This is an outdoor concert; please bring a chair or blanket for seating. In the event of inclement weather, the program will be moved indoors to our Community Room and first 30 registrants will be seated. Masks are required for indoor events.
This program is made possible by funding from the AWPL Foundation.

Relax and melt away stress with the power of Breath and Sound Meditation. In meditation the mind-body system experiences deep rest as it transitions from an active state to a more relaxed and restorative state. While there are many forms of meditation, sound meditation is a practice used for centuries for physical healing, clarity of mind and deep meditation. In this form of meditation we will simply connect with the breath and soothing sound vibrations of Alchemy Crystal bowls to relax the mind and body. Join this 8 week sound meditation program to quiet your mind and learn to switch off the external noises and connect with your inner self. Please register for each individual class.
