WORCESTER- Central Mass will light up this fall when the Worcester Chamber Music Society (WCMS) brings its On Fire concerts to Grafton and Worcester.
The small ensemble, featuring acclaimed violinists Lilit Hartunian and Katherine Winterstein, will perform selections by Harbison, Ginastera, and Mendelssohn on Nov. 3 at the Congregational Church in Grafton and Nov. 4 at Shapiro Hall in Worcester.
The WCMS has consistently received critical and popular acclaim for its commitment to community engagement and education since its founding in 2006. The WCMS began its twelfth season this fall with a free concert at Mechanics hall.
In addition to the concerts, WCMS will host a coat drive to benefit the more than 50 Burmese refugee children currently settled in Worcester. They will collect new and gently used coats, hats, gloves, mittens, and socks for infants through children 12 years old.
The WCMS will perform On Fire at the Congregational Church in Grafton on Friday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. and at The Joy of Music Program, Shapiro Hall, on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $10 – $36 for adults; children 16 and under free. Tickets are available now and may be purchased by phone (508) 217-4450, at the door, or at http://worcesterchambermusic.org/on-fire.
