The Scarab Club
Chamber Music at the Scarab Club is very pleased to present From FL to MI: Scharrón-Wiesinger Duo, in the beautiful main gallery of Detroit’s historic Scarab Club. The program features flutist Carrie Wiesinger, originally from Michigan and Puerto Rican-born guitarist Eladio Scharrón, both joining us from Florida. They will perform duos and a few solos, including selections from their newly released CD, Héroes! Cellist Nadine Deleury will also perform on Journal, a trio for flute, cello and guitar, written in 1996 by American composer Allen Shawn. Nadine Deleury and violinist Velda Kelly will play two J.S. Bach Duets originally written for organ and arranged for violin and cello by Ukrainian-born cellist Joachim Stutschewsky.
As always, each piece on the program will be introduced by one of the musicians and the concert will be followed by a delicious and friendly reception.

press release cmsc March 5, 2017
The series is well known for its innovative programming, outstanding performers and informal atmosphere. Each program is introduced by a speaker and followed by a friendly reception. Directors Deleury and Kelly are dedicated to featuring local performers as well as an occasional group from outside the Detroit area. Some highlights of previous seasons include the melodrama Ghosts of a Paris Past, a performance by the Borsarello Trio, Vancouver’s Orchid Ensemble, bandoneonist Peter Soave, the music of René Becker and several programs featuring the music of female composers. CMSC has also commissioned and presented world and American premieres, such as works by Michigan composers Erik Santos and Clark Suttle, New Yorker Sean Hickey, as well as the music of French composer Nicolas Bacri.
Over the years, with the generous support of MCACA, the City of Detroit and The George and Helen Deffenbaugh Foundation, CMSC performers have had the distinct pleasure of presenting many vibrant educational programs for young audiences from the Bates Academy, Spain School, Cass Technical High School and students from Marygrove College.
In keeping with the artistic tradition of the Scarab Club, one concert in 2008 combined the bold and multi-layered art work of Étienne Yver with the elegant music of Mozart, featuring pianist Louis Nagel. On the day following that Sunday concert, students from Detroit’s Spain School joined the artist and musicians for a very special program at the Scarab Club. The repertoire for these programs is usually taken from that season’s subscription concerts.
Frequently, composers, including Erik Santos, Clark Suttle and Pierre Thilloy, present their works to the young listeners and explain how they approached writing the music.
Special guest, Ghanaian xylophonist Bernard Woma performed for students at the Scarab Club and even encouraged them to dance to the music!
Another program featured Sukey and the Mermaid by Anne LeBaron and showcased the talented Michigan Opera Theater Children’s Chorus.
This is a series that succeeds in integrating a variety of art forms. Visual art, drama and literature have all been incorporated into many of the concerts. Check the season schedule for more information about this year’s exciting programs.
The Chamber Music concert schedule occurs between the months of September and June. For better outreach, concerts are offered both at the Scarab Club and at other locations in the metro Detroit area. Please always reference the time and location before attending a concert.
