Chamber Music at the Scarab Club will continue its 17th season on November 16th at the Scarab Club, with another exciting program that music lovers will definitely not want to miss!

Flutist Carmen Maret and guitarist Andrew Bergeron have been performing together as the Folias Flute and Guitar Duo for over ten years. The two, who are now based in Grand Rapids, met while studying at Michigan State University. While the majority of their music is concert chamber music they also integrate world, jazz and tango dance band music into their compositions. They love to travel and much of their music is inspired by their experiences in rural and natural areas around the world.

A performance of the Brahms Clarinet Quintet is a treat under any circumstances but when you combine the intimate ambience of the Scarab Club with the sensitive playing of MOT principal clarinetist Brian Bowman, this promises to be something very special. Brahms was 58 years old and came out of retirement to compose this and three other works that he dedicated to the clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld. The Clarinet Quintet is one of the most stunning pieces of chamber music ever written. Its melancholic mood is perfect for a concert on a November evening in Michigan!

As always each piece will be introduced by one of the musicians and the performance will be followed by a delicious and friendly reception.
