Copenhagen Chamber Ensemble Delights Audience
A packed house at the Art School thoroughly enjoyed the baroque and contemporary music played by this outstanding Danish ensemble. The five musicians have played together for 30 years and also perform with leading Danish orchestras. The group consists of a flute, piano, cello, violin and oboe.
After hearing intricate classical melodies from the past, it was an amusing change of rhythm to hear them play “New York, New York” as an encore.
The community and the St. John School of the Arts joined with the St. Thomas-St. John Friends of Denmark Society in making sure their stay on St. John was one to remember. Kim Wild, assistant director of the Art School, along with Fuller Campbell of the Friends of Denmark Society planned the program. Kim and SJSA are grateful to St. John Ice, Quiet Mon Pub, Mixology, Earl Thomas, Laurie Odenbach, Karen Brady, Lori Dudkin, the Schaub family, Stone Terrace Restaurant, Connections and Fuller Campbell for the donations that made the ensemble’s visit enjoyable.
