Download Season Brochure

The Gabriel Chamber Ensemble (GCE) presents the final concert of its 33rd season with music by great masters Brahms and Elgar.

The Ensemble will perform movements of sonatas for violin, viola, cello and piano by Brahms, giving the audience an up-close and personal experience of each string instrument. You will also be treated to the complete Elgar Piano Quintet Op. 84. Elgar wrote this intensely romantic quintet in 1919, drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the area surrounding his cottage in Sussex, England.

The concert takes place at 3pm, Sunday, April 2, at the Jerusalem Lutheran Church, 252 Dock St., Schuylkill Haven, PA.

In addition to Xun Pan on piano, the concert features Ensemble members Simon Maurer and Dana Allaband on violin, Agnes Maurer on viola, and Gerall Hieser on cello. You won't want to miss this delightful wrap-up to the 33rd Season of the Gabriel Chamber Ensemble!
