Rush Hour was delighted to welcome members of Fifth House Ensemble on Tuesday for A Composer’s Fire Rekindled: Johannes Brahms Clarinet Trio, Op. 114. Clarinetist Jennifer Woodrum prefaced the ensemble’s performance with a heartfelt talk on her appreciation of Brahms’ trio and her approach to the complexities and subtleties of chamber music. She was joined by cellist Herine Coetzee and pianist Adam Marks for an exquisite rendering of Brahms’ classic work.
Audience members, the artists, and members of the Fanfare Committee enjoyed hot dog flights, refreshing drinks, and stimulating conversation at the post-concert happy hour at nearby Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap.
