Pentangle launches series

WOODSTOCK – The Gordon-Chang-Rider Trio will return at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 10, to perform an all-Beethoven, but very varied, concert at the Unitarian Universalist Church. The concert launches Pentangle Arts Council’s annual Chamber Music Series.

The concert will feature the Sonata No. 4 in C Major for Cello and Piano; the Sonata No. 7 in c minor for violin and piano, and conclude with the Piano Trio in D Major, Opus 70, No. 1, known as the “Ghost Trio.”

These three distinguished musicians come from diverse musical backgrounds. Pianist Judith Gordon made her New York recital debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts, was named 1997 Musician of the Year by the Boston Globe, and in 2006 joined the music faculty of Smith College. Violinist Elizabeth Chang is perhaps best known as the artistic director of the Lighthouse Chamber Players on Cape Cod, but also performed, recorded, and toured extensively with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Cellist Rhonda Rider is currently a member of the celebrated piano trio Triple Helix.
