Meadowinds’ melodies: Chamber to share music at the chapel

The Auditorium Chamber Music Series provides much more than five concerts a year, ACMS director Mary DuPree said.

“It brings some of the best chamber music groups from around the world,” DuPree said. “But we are very active in supplementing the music programs in schools.”

And that is why, DuPree said, ACMS decided to start Music at Meadowinds, a Sunday benefit with hors d’oeuvres and wine at the Meadowinds Chapel in Moscow.

“We call it a fundraiser and a friendraiser, because we would like to, in particular, encourage people who have not come to the ACMS to get to know us a little bit,” she said. “Anybody who is interested in visiting just a beautiful place, enjoying some great food and listening to some great music would enjoy doing this.”

A short trio concert in the estate chapel will take place with flutist Leonard Garrison, clarinetist Shannon Scott and bassoonist Susan Hess.

Wine Company of Moscow and Wawawai Canyon Winery will provide wines to supplement summer food specialties provided by Gnosh Restaurant and Hideaway.

Tickets, for $75, can be purchased by calling Program Manager Kathleen Larson at (208) 885-7557, or by emailing chmusic@uidaho.edu. $50 of the proceeds benefitting ACMS programs is tax-deductible. Payment by today will ensure a reservation, as seating and parking are limited.

The ACMS season will kick off with the Ariel String Quartet and pianist Orion Weiss in September.
