IBIS: A Chamber Music Society

I'm happy to invoke the cliche that says, "Best kept secret in Washington, D.C.," because IBIS: A Chamber Music Society is such a delightful and talented neighborhood ensemble just across the river in Clarendon, and few classical music enthusiasts seem to know about them.  They will be performing their last concert of the season nearby at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 6201 Washington Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 16.  The concert is free.  You can watch a few clips at their YouTube channel, or just watch the introductory film embedded in this posting - created by yours truly, the dilettante documentary filmmaker du jour.  And you can also listen to a recording of the duo who founded the group, Joseph Scheer and Susan Robinson.

The program will include Vivaldi's Flute Concerto: The Goldfinch; Handel's Concerto for Harp in Bb; Debussy's Danses Sacre et Profane; and Mendelssohn's mammoth Octet for Strings.
