First Presbyterian 2018 concert series beginning


On Sunday, January 21, 2018, the Con Brio String Quartet performed a concert at First Presbyterian Church of Vero Beach. This was the first performance of the 2018 Chamber Music Concert Series hosted by the church. The Con Brio String Quartet formed at Lynn University Conservatory of Music and is based in South Florida. This young ensemble is comprised of four award-winning international musicians; Valentin Mansurov (Russia), Marina Lenau (Ukraine), David Pedraza (Mexico), and Aziz Sapaev, (Turkey). Due to an illness, Mansurov was unable to be at Sunday’s concert. In his place was Russian violinist Evginiya Antonyan. The group performed Mozart’s String Quartet No. 14 in G Major, K.387, and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 3 in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1.

The Chamber Music Concert Series at First Pres offers the community an opportunity to hear world-class musicians in an intimate venue at no cost. “It is the vision of all our music and arts programs to reflect beauty, excellence, and intentionality”, said Jacob Craig, Director of Music and Arts at First Presbyterian Church of Vero Beach. The next concert will be a four-hand piano concert featuring Sergey Belyavskiy and Jacob Craig; to be held on Sunday, February 4, at 4:00pm in the First Presbyterian Church sanctuary, 520 Royal Palm Boulevard, Vero Beach. This concert will feature both four-hand and solo performances. It is free to the community; donations will be accepted.
