Florida Chamber Music Project musicians plan June 2 concert


Pianist Hyunsoon Whang will join the Florida Chamber Music Project (FCMP) for the final concert of the 2023-24 season on June 2. The performance includes the Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F minor, Opus 34 and Robert Schumann’s “Kinderszenen,” Opus 15. The concert begins at 3 p.m. at the Beaches Museum Chapel at the Beaches Museum at 505 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach. It is sponsored by Toni Porterfield.

Whang has known FCMP Artistic Director Susan Pardue since both studied at the North Carolina School of the Arts. She has made several appearances with FCMP over the years.

“We are pleased to be joined by pianist Hyunsoon Whang for this concert,” said Pardue. “Hyunsoon has played with us many times, and concerts with her are always enthusiastically received. She will open the concert with Schumann’s ‘Kinderszenen,’ one of piano literature’s greatest hits. We will finish the concert and our season together with Brahms’ epic Quintet in f minor.”

Tickets are $30 and are available for purchase through Eventbrite. Single tickets are also available for purchase at the door, as are student tickets at a cost of $10.

Beaches Museum Chapel is wheelchair-accessible and has free parking along Pablo Avenue near 4th Street North of Beach Boulevard. Attendees are invited to attend a post-concert reception.

The Florida Chamber Music Project was founded 11 years ago by Pardue. Members include violinists Patrice Evans and Ann Hertler and cellist Laurie Casseday. All are members of the Jacksonville Symphony.
