16th Street’s Church of the Holy City to Present Free Concert

Sun., Jun. 10 (7:30pm): The “Music with the Angels” series presented by the Church of the Holy City (16th & Corcoran Sts., NW) this month will be featuring the DC Chamber Music Players Orchestra in its premiere concert with pianists Yanya Lee and Mila Naumova-Roushakes. The program will include Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 and his Symphony No. 40, Bach’s “English Suite,” and Beethoven’s “Pastoral Sonata.”

The DC Chamber Music Players promotes a collegial, non-competitive environment for its dedicated group of musicians who delight in coming together to play their various instruments for their own enjoyment and collective fun. Tanya Lee is an acclaimed artist, having made her debut at the age of 11 with the Kilgore College Symphony. She is a former Young Artist. Ms. Lee most recently studied under Xak Bjerken and Malcolm Bilson at Cornell University, where she performed in master classes given by Gil Kalish. Mila Naumova-Roushakes was raised in a family of generations of renowned musicians in Sofia, Bulgaria and attended the specialized Liubomir Pipkov music school in Sofia from the age of five, with concentration on piano. She earned a Master’s degree in Pedagogy and Performance at George Mason University, studying with Professor Anna Balakerskaia. Ms. Naumova-Roushakes received the C. Cook scholarship award, was a part of “M3E”, the modern music ensemble of the university, and founded the “Musica Pulchra,” a renaissance and baroque chamber group that performed yearly.

Regular attendees of these concerts should note that this month the program will start at 7:30 in the evening instead of the customary mid-afternoon time. Admission is free, a reception will follow with light fare and refreshments to be served. Admission by donation to the church’s Tower Restoration Fund welcome.
