On Sunday, May 13, beginning at 4 p.m., the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center is hosting the Composer-Performer-Repertory Ensemble, also known as CPR. It’s an unwieldy name, but the acronym, suggesting a life-saving antidote, is apt. This group can play.
The ensemble is comprised of Matthew Woodard on violin and viola, Nicholas Davies on clarinet, Lev Mamuya on cello, Christopher Staknys on piano and was recently founded by its director, Howard Frazin, at the New England Conservatory.
All of the performers are composers, harkening back to a time when men and women regularly roamed castles, and have written music for each other for the concert.
Although the group has just recently formed, and the cast is young, their lists of achievements as individuals are as big as bass notes.
Okay, so now you know, this Sunday is an opportunity to see classical music greatness in its ascension. And the cost, just $5.
The Hebrew Center is located at 130 Center street in Vineyard Haven. For more information, call 508-693-0745 or visit mvhc.us.
