Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association Presents Solisti Ensemble

(OCEAN GROVE, NJ) -- The Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association presents Solisti Ensemble on Thursday, July 21 at 7:30pm in the Great Auditorium. The String Ensemble is celebrating its 13th Anniversary Season with works by Mozart, Shostakovich, Carl Jenkins, Astor Piazzolla, Sarasate and G.F. Handel. This eleven-piece string ensemble has garnered a following in Ocean Grove, where it will be back by popular demand after successful performance over the past several summers.

The program includes Carl Jenkins’ Palladio Suite; Astor Piazzolla’s La Cumparsita, Por Una Cabaza and Oblivion; Pablo de Sarate’s Carmen Fantasy (Christine Kwak soloist); Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik; Strauss’ Overture from Die Fledermaus; Shostakovich’s String Quartet; and Handel’s Organ Concerto. 

Founded in 2008 by violinist Byung-Kook Kwak, the Solisti Ensemble is based in New York. The group consists of eleven active string soloists and chamber musicians dedicated reviving the traditions of small-ensemble chamber music. The ensemble is exceptional for its unique size of the ensemble and the individual virtuosity of each member.Solisti Ensemble performs not only classical chamber music, but also arrangements of pop, tango, and jazz. 

Since its inception, the ensemble has given concerts around the Metropolitan Area, including regular appearances at Alice Tully Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall. In January 2013, the ensemble made its debut at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium. In hopes of making a meaningful musical contribution to its community, both local and global, Solisti Ensemble envisions the enthusiastic revival of classical music in a way that is both culturally relevant and nostalgically reminiscent of an oft forgotten period of the art. Solisti Ensemble promises to bring a most fulfilling and fascinating musical experience to audiences everywhere.

The Great Auditorium is located at Pilgrim and Ocean Pathways in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. All facilities are handicapped accessible.  Tickets:  $17.00, $10 for students.   Tickets are available for purchase online or by calling 732-534-3462.
