sfGifted chamber music artists will present Franz Schubert’s spirited Piano Trio No. 2 in E-flat major and Cesar Franck’s emotional Piano Quintet in F minor at the Estero Concert Series’ performance at the Koreshan State Park at 4 p.m., Sunday, January 17.

Featured artists for this concert are Max Rabinovitsj and Daniela Shtereva on violins; John Posadas on viola; Paul York on cello, and Dror Biran on piano.

Performers for the Estero Concert Series are all accomplished classical musicians, several of whom are currently with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and other important musical groups around the country.

The concerts also feature a restored 1885 Steinway grand piano which was used by Koreshans in numerous concerts during their golden age.

The Art Hall at the Koreshan State Park is located at 3800 Corkscrew Road.  Seating is limited to 90 attendees.

Tickets are available at $40 per person; this price includes entrance to the park.  These concerts have been sold out in the past so reservations are recommended.  Reservations may be made by calling (239) 596-8404 or emailing rcc@rccnaples.org.

kThe venue honors the Koreshan Unity Settlement which considered art and music an integral part of their lives.  The Art Hall was built circa 1905.  Bella Gutshtein became interested in developing a cultural center there and, following reconstruction of the facility, she brought a New York architect to the Hall to ensure that it would provide the proper acoustics for chamber music.

It is the goal of the Estero Concert Series’ Artistic Directors Bella Gutshtein and Boris Sandler to make a lasting impact on the cultural life of Estero as well as make Estero an important cultural destination in Florida.

These concert series provide the cultural environment envisioned by the Koreshans for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors of today.
