Shades of Summer II features the URI Brass Quintet and three Kingston Chamber Music Festival artists.

The URI Brass Quintet will perform Edwald’s Brass Quintet No. 3 in D-flat Major, Op. 7, and the Kingston Chamber Music Festival artists will perform Glière’s Duos for Violin and Cello, Op. 39 as well as Arensky’s Trio No. 1, Op. 32 for violin, cello and piano.

For the past thirty years, Kingston Chamber Music Festival has brought talented chamber music artists from all over the country to the Southern Rhode Island community.  The center of the festival’s work is their annual two-week summer festival of six reasonably-priced subscription concerts, which will be held this summer from July 25th - Aug 5. They have also recently expanded their season, and are now presenting several concerts through the year.
