Violins for Valentine's Day in Cape May

The Herald lets us know about Violins for Valentine's Day at the Cape Island Baptist Church on Guerney Street.  Here are the details in case you are interested in attending:

 On Feb. 11, at Cape May Baptist Church, Gurney & Columbia Aves., the director of the Sam Maitin Summer Chamber Music Festival, Aurelia Mika Chang, will be joined by well-known Hungarian violinist, Bela Horvath in a Valentine's Day special concert. The concert will take place at 4 p.m.

"Several years ago, we hosted a Valentine's Day concert with Kathryn Krueger, violinist, and Aurelia Mika Chang, pianist, and it was a wonderful classical concert of romantic music. About 70 people came out, and 38 of them went to dinner at the Washington Inn with the musicians. It was very European, and very enjoyable, and lovers of music were delighted." said Barbara Beitel, Access to Art, Director. "Aurelia Mika Chang began our Sam Maitin Summer Chamber Music series, and also was a founding member of the Mondrian Ensemble. She performs on three continents and has been featured on national television in China, and on WQXR in NYC as a young musician." Beitel said.

"Aurelia Mika Chang, who holds a Masters in Music from Juilliard, is bringing Bela Horvath, Manhattan School of Music pre-instructor, and former winner of competitions, including the National Janoz Konez violin competition, in Hungary to Cape May.

Definitely sounds like a romantic event.
