The Finger Lakes Chamber Ensemble brings wine country roots and stringed prowess to stage. Inspired by a shared passion for chamber music, the members of the Finger Lakes Chamber Ensemble began performing as a group in 1990. Hailed as the “premier ensemble of the Finger Lakes region,” they continue their association with the Lodi Historical Society with a series of two chamber concerts surrouned by wine country. Members of the Finger Lakes Chamber Ensemble include; Shannon Nance, violin; Roberta Crawford, viola; Stefan Reuss, cello; and Michael Salmirs, piano.

“WE all owe a huge debt to Johannes Brahms,” Nance says. Brahms enriched the piano repertoire with pieces like the piano quartet in G minor, symphonic in scope, that FLCE performs. “Sometimes you’ll be quite amazed… that he could stake the four strings in the piano and create the kind of sound he did create,” Nance explains.
