Music brings joy at Luther Burbank Park

Thanks to the creativity and passion of Mercer Island's own Natalya Ageyeva, founder and artistic director of the Russian Chamber Music Foundation of Seattle, chamber music reverberated on Sunday afternoon in the amphitheater of Luther Burbank Park.

With Natalya at the piano, Brittany Boulding, violinist; Mara German, violist; Kevin Krentz, cellist; and Artur Girsky, violist, and a surprise visit from Deborah Dewey for exciting "four hands" at the piano, the beautiful chamber music carried throughout the amphitheater to adults and families who have been hungering for classical music once again at Luther Burbank Park.

Our hope is that the Mercer Island Arts Council will respond to the community's positive and appreciative response, Sunday, and work with Natalya to schedule her chamber music next summer as a part of Mostly Music In The Park at our Luther Burbank treasure … the amphitheater.
