Lyra Ensemble

April 7, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Lyra Ensemble

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome the Lyra Ensemble in the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary.

The Lyra Ensemble, now in its third season, is dedicated to performing newly composed virtuoso works, while interpreting standard repertoire with new vigor. Works they will be performing may include:

  • Concerto for Four Flutes, After the Concerto for Four Violins, RV 580 by Antonio Vivaldi
  • Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Felix Mendelssohn
  • Le Tombeau de Couperin by Maurice Ravel
  • Quartet No. 1 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
  • Amazing Grace arranged by Jennifer Higdon

The group, comprised of flutists Kristin Bacchiocchi-Stewart, Ellen Fisher Deerberg, Anna Meyer, and Elivi Varga, make educational outreach as important as their dynamic performances. The ensemble has performed concerts throughout the East Coast, including at churches in Paramus and River Edge, NJ, Glenside, PA, and Wilmington, DE. In addition, the ensemble has performed at the New Jersey Music Teachers Association Flute Day, Mid-Atlantic Flute Fair, New York Flute Fair, Rutgers University, Frostburg University, Temple University, and the Flute Society of Greater Philadelphia Flute Fair.
