July’s chamber music concert at Cascadia Art Museum is a confection-box assortment of short classical pieces by Debussy, Elgar, Mendelssohn, Satie and Bizet, plus a few delicious surprises. Violinist Pamela Liu and pianist Harumi Makiyama have titled this romantic concert “Date Night.” The program also features the world premier of two works by Edmonds-based classical composer Cal Lewin.
Pianist Harumi Makiyama’s international appearances include Benaroya Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, the Tokyo Bunkakaikan, and the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival in Bonefro, Italy; she is currently completing her doctoral degree in piano performance at the University of Washington. Violinist Pamela Liu is concertmaster for the Cascade Symphony and one of the most sought after and active violinists in the Northwest.
