Sherman Chamber Ensemble Presents “The Marvelous Mr. Mozart”

Sherman Chamber Ensemble Presents

The Marvelous Mr. Mozart”

May 21 in Sherman and May 22 in Washington

Despite his short life of 35 years, Mozart’s rapid pace of composition resulted in more than 800 works of virtually every genre of his time. Many of these compositions are acknowledged as pinnacles of the symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral repertoire.

Many say that he is among the greatest composers in the history of Western music.

Audiences will be treated to a sampling of his works played by the Sherman Chamber Ensemble, celebrating its 40th Anniversary Year, in an all-Mozart concert, “The Marvelous Mr. Mozart.” The program will include selected duos, the Flute Quartet in D, K. 285 and Divertimento in E-flat Major, K. 563.

Performers are SCE Artistic Director and cellist Eliot Bailen, Susan Rotholz (flute), Doori Na (violin), and Sarah Adams (viola).

The concerts will take place on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 p.m. at The JCC in Sherman, 9 CT Route 39 and on Sunday, May 22 at 2 p.m. at the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in Washington.

General Admission tickets are $25, and children ages 15 and under are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased online at or at the door. For information or reservations call 860-355-5930 or email

For all Spring 2022 performances, proof of Covid-19 vaccination, a valid ID and masks are required. Children under 12 are not currently required to be vaccinated to participate in any programs. Proof of a negative Covid-19 test will not be accepted as an alternative to vaccination.


World Class Music, Close to Home

Founded in 1982 by cellist Eliot Bailen, Artistic Director, and flutist Susan Rotholz, the Sherman Chamber Ensemble offers a year-round schedule of performances for all ages at venues in Connecticut and New York.

Guided by its mission to bring world class musicians to our communities and schools to perform a diverse range of music with an approach that is intimate and inclusive, the SCE has been described by The New York Times as “about as close as it gets to the Platonic ideal of a chamber music concert.”

SCE’s music spans from Baroque to contemporary classics, including a summer chamber music series, educational activities and a year-round slate of musical events showcasing the best of live musical performance, from classical to bluegrass to jazz – plus children’s and family concerts, school residencies and pop/rock coffeehouses.

In addition to concert subscription and ticket sales, support comes from private foundations, local businesses and many generous individual donors as well as the State of Connecticut Department of Community and Economic Development Office of the Arts and from CT Humanities.
