Chamber group gives concert
The Warm Springs Chamber Ensemble will present a concert of classical music for violin, viola, and piano on Saturday, June 2 at the Berkeley Springs Presbyterian Church, 206 Mercer Street, as part of the "Church on the Hill" concert series. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free to the public.
The ensemble – Heather Worley, violin; Linda Whitesitt, viola and Patricia Springer, piano – will perform Fairy Tales, Op. 132 by Robert Schumann, Sonata, Op. 24 No. 5 by Ludwig van Beethoven for violin and piano, Meditation and Processional for Viola and Piano by Ernest Bloch and will end the program with several selections by Scott Joplin arranged for trio.
The Warm Springs Chamber Ensemble was founded in 2004 by Berkeley Springs' residents Worley, Whitesitt and Springer to share the joy of playing chamber music with each other and with their community.
An alumna of Peabody Conservatory and former faculty member at the Peabody Conservatory Preparatory School and Morgan State University, Springer teaches piano in her private studio as well as in a state-of-the-art piano lab which she established at Berkeley Springs High School.
Worley, a graduate of Bob Jones University (B.S., M.M.) and former member of the Lansing Symphony Orchestra, is devoted to educating her three children, who are following in her footsteps as musicians.
Whitesitt, a graduate of Peabody Conservatory (B.M., M.M.) and the University of Maryland (Ph.D.) and a former member of symphony orchestras in Charlotte, Miami, and Roanoke as well as a former public school and university strings specialist, is currently an independent consultant in arts education evaluation.
