Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio in G Minor and Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 in D Major will be featured in the Estero Concert Series’ final concert of the season at 4 p.m., Sunday, March 25, at the Koreshan Art Hall.
Performing artists include Bella Gutshtein on piano, Boris Sandler and Ruth Leone on violins, Suzannah Chalick on viola and Antonio Innaimo on cello.
This concert puts the spotlight on the restored 1885 Steinway grand piano which was used by Koreshans in numerous concerts during their golden age.
The historic Art Hall at the Koreshan State Park is located at 3800 Corkscrew Road. Seating is limited to 90 attendees.
Tickets are available at $42 per person per concert; 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The venue honors the Koreshan Unity Settlement which considered art and music an integral part of their lives. The Art Hall was built circa 1905. 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 Gutshtein and 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.
