On December 13, at 2:00 p.m., Le Petit Salon de Musique will welcome the season with a special performance by The Holiday Trio. The Trio is comprised of three outstanding local chamber orchestra performers, violinist Beatrice Flipse, flutist Sally Shorrock, and cellist Tiffany Jordan, who have come together to play some of the world’s most beautiful and well-known classical music of the holidays.
Beatrice Flipse is an accomplished musician and educator with an advanced degree in Orchestral Conducting, who serves on the Board of the Long Island String Festival Association. For the past four years, she has also piloted the new Chamber Music Festival. She is a member of the Prima Quartet and performs as a violinist for orchestras across Long Island. Flipse has served as the orchestra director of the Uniondale High School orchestra program since 2007 and her students have been recognized internationally in competitions. Sally Shorrock grew up in a musical family, including an uncle who sang lead tenor with the New York City Opera. She is an advanced degree in performance and plays with the Canta Libre Chamber Ensemble at classical music festivals throughout the northeast. She is a member of the music faculty of St. Joseph’s College. The trio is completed by outstanding cellist Tiffany Jordan, who has played for theatrical productions across the region for more than 20 years.
These three talented chamber music performers have created a festive holiday musical celebration that includes the beloved Haydn London Trios, Brandenberg Concerto No. 5 by J.S. Bach, Mozart trios, Blues for flute, violin and cello, an adventurous newly composed piece by Gary Schocker, as well as merry songs of the season including a Nutcracker Suite medley. Join us and be carried into the holiday spirit by the most beautiful sounds of this amazing trio.
"Le Petit Salon de Musique continues to provide outstanding programs featuring truly accomplished musicians. The intimacy of the setting, and the virtuosity of the performers, make it a unique experience for people who truly love good music. We have been attending since the Salon's inception, re-arranging our own busy schedules whenever necessary in order not to miss a single concert." Susan and Paul Glatzer
"On December 18, 2011 we attended the concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship which featured Alexandria and Friends. It was our first concert at the Fellowship. We experienced one of the most exciting, enjoyable and musically competent concerts we have attended in many years. Alexandria Lee's piano performance was professional, beautiful and electrifying. The individual soloists on the violin, cello, viola and flute displayed outstanding competency. The finale quartet was nothing more than breathtaking. We look forward to attending future concerts." Deanna and Ted Schwartzman
"The concerts are absolutely superb. The performers are first rate and the venue is great. Keep it up!" George
"I've attended two of the concerts, and have to say that I was amazed at their professionalism. The music is wonderful and the atmosphere cozy. I could listen to the string quartet every week-they were magnificent!" Diana
"I just wanted to say that I was so glad I made it to the concert (just in the nick of time!!) because the performance was absolutely wonderful. I commented to another that I wouldn't be surprised if people somewhere, in other venues, etc., pay up to 10 times what we did yesterday to hear such a concert (Clueri Quartet). It was just amazing. Thank you for continuing to bring us such talented artists, at an irresistibly affordable price." Carol Castillo
