Chamber music concert at township library

By Lisa Brody

Chamber music aficionados will rejoice as the Bloomfield Township Public Library, along with the University of Michigan School of Music, Theater and Dance, announce the return of the Chamber Music series, beginning with their first concert on Friday, November 18 at the library at 7 p.m.

The concert will feature Trio Amabile performing Piano Trio in G Major, K. 496 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Piano Trio in B Major, Op. 8 by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), and more. Trio Amabile includes the talent of violinist Jordan Bartel, cellist Emma Cary, and pianist Tzu-Kuang Tan.

The evening is free and open to everyone. No registration is required.

The Chamber Music Concert series is sponsored by the Friends of Bloomfield Township Public Library. This particular concert is dedicated to the memory of stalwart Friends volunteer and chamber music lover, Dr. Ira Firestone, who was also a long-time professor of psychology at Wayne State University.

Violinist Jordan Bartel is currently pursuing his master’s in violin performance and chamber music at the University of Michigan under the tutelage of Aaron Berofsky. An avid chamber musician, Bartel has been a part of the Lyrica Chamber Orchestra since 2016 under the mentorship of celebrated chamber musicians and pedagogues Laura Bossert and Terry King, performing across the east coast.

Emma Cary is a cellist from Richmond, Virginia. She began cello lessons at the age of 5 with her father, Neal Cary, and studied with him for 12 years. In 2019, she began her studies at the University of Michigan as a cello performance major with Richard Aaron. In the summers, she attended Eastern Music Festival, the Meadowmount School of Music, and Kneisel Hall.

Tzu-Kuang Tan was born in Malaysia in 1996. He is currently a graduate student at the University of Michigan, studying with Amy I-Lin Cheng and Martin Katz. He was also a graduate of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory in Singapore, studying under Albert Tiu with a full scholarship. He is an active chamber musician.
