College of Charleston Sottile Theater
Chamber Music Charleston (CMC) welcomes violinist James Ehnes to Sottile Theatre for a program of music for violin, cello, and piano. Gifted with a rare combination of stunning virtuosity, serene lyricism, and an unfaltering musicality, James Ehnes is a favorite guest of many of the world’s most respected conductors. He has soloed with a long list of orchestras including the Boston, Chicago, London, and Vienna Symphony Orchestras, the Los Angeles, New York, Munich and Czech Philharmonic Orchestras, and the Cleveland, Philadelphia, Philharmonia and DSO Berlin orchestras.
James will be joined by his good friend and collaborator Andrew Armstrong, praised for his “breathtaking technique and sensitivity” by the New York Times, and cellist Alice Yoo, whose “warm, rich tone and impeccable phrasing” (The Strad) have made her a sought-after performer.
