The Board of Music, in partnership with artistic adviser Carl Shuster, will present Yevgeny Kutik and Benjamin Luxon in “The Reflected Voice: Music for Violin and Spoken Word.” The concert will feature two works by British composer Richard Pantcheff: To Autumn, featuring British poetry on the theme of autumn, and New England Elegy, with a text by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Kutik will also perform works of JS Bach for solo violin. Admission is $35 at the door.  The church is located at 4 Main Street, Stockbridge.

The texts will be narrated by world-renowned baritone and Berkshire County resident Benjamin Luxon, who has performed title roles at the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, and the English National Opera.  Violinist Yevgeny Kutik, raised in Berkshire County, made his orchestral debut in 2003 with the Boston Pops as the winner of the Boston Symphony Young Artists competition. Since then he has appeared as a soloist with orchestras across the US and Europe.   Composer Richard Pantcheff is a specialist in music for the Church of England whose organ and choral works have been performed in sacred and secular venues in England and South Africa.
