Lisa’s friends include Lanetta Paul on piano, Cathy Muller on flute, and Sammy Elwell on cello.  Lanetta is locally grown pianist and organist extraordinaire. Cathy Muller is from Pendleton but many folks will know her as the daughter of Ted and Mary Brown and the daughter-in-law of Marilyn Muller.  Sammy is from St. Louis, Missouri and is currently teaching music in Monument through the Ethos Program.

This chamber concert brings together music originally written for either two flutes or two violins but Lisa and Friends have re-mixed for violin, cello, flute, and piano.  The group will perform Sonata in G Major, K. 98, by Karl Friedrich Abel, Bagatelles, Op. 47, by Antonin Dvořák, Five Pieces for Flute, Violin, and Piano by Dmitri Shostakovich, Sicilienne, Op. 48, and Pavane, Op. 50, both by Gabriel Fauré.

The Grande Ronde Symphony Association is honored to host Lisa, Lanetta, Cathy, and Sammy at the May 5 Chamber Concert.  This will be a wonderful evening of diverse music by very talented, accomplished musicians.  Doors open at 6:15 pm with the performance commencing at 7:00 pm.  Following the concert, attendees will enjoy conversations with refreshments, wine, and punch provided by the directors of the Grande Ronde Symphony Association Board.

Season chamber concert pass holders get in by flashing their passes. Even if you don’t have a season pass, everyone is welcome to attend by paying $25 at the door. For more information, please contact Patty Sandoz at or 541-963-7595.
