A Composer’s Sense of Place

New England Philharmonic Chamber Players

The New England Philharmonic Chamber Players present compositions from New England and abroad to complement the Athenaeum’s exhibition New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenæum’s Prints & Photographs Collection. The performance will demonstrate that music, like works of art on paper, is permeated by a sense of place and context. Players will perform and discuss compelling works by Charles Ives, Bela Bartok, Matt Aucoin, and New England Philharmonic composers Jason Coleman and Emily Koh.

Jason Coleman, cello, is principal cello with the New England Philharmonic. Colman holds a B.A. in music from Tufts University and an M.M. in music theory from New England Conservatory. He works as a freelance musician in the greater Boston area.

Jamie Doyle, viola, is principal violinist with the New England Philharmonic and a Scientist at Vertex Pharmaceuticals. While majoring in chemistry at Wake Forest University, she received a Presidential Scholarship for her music.

John Lyneis, violin, has been principal second violin with the New England Philharmonic since 2007. He performs frequently in chamber and orchestral ensembles in the Boston area and is a management consultant specializing in simulation analysis of complex business issues.

Danielle Maddon, violin, is concertmaster of the New England Philharmonic and founding leader of the New England Philharmonic Chamber Players. She performs, records, and tours with groups including the Boston Pops, Boston Baroque, and Emmanuel Music.

This concert is offered in conjunction with New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenæum’s Prints & Photographs Collection. The exhibition gallery will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the day of the concert. Gallery admission is free for Athenæum members and $5 per person for non-members.

Registration begins April 24 at 9 am. Tickets will be available here.
