Violinist Roger Wilkie will join the City of Angels Ensemble in Port Townsend for a concert of Mozart

WEEKEND: City of Angels Ensemble set to play Port Townsend on Sunday

PORT TOWNSEND — The music of Mozart, Schubert and Faure will spring to life Sunday as the City of Angels Ensemble arrives for the Port Townsend Chamber Music Festival finale.

The music will start at 2 p.m. in the Wheeler Theater, the venue just inside the gate to Fort Worden State Park, with tickets at $30 and $35 for the performance and reception afterward.

Outlets include www.centrum.org and 800-746-1982 and, on Sunday afternoon, the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden, 200 Battery Way.

This year’s festival, in fact a series of concerts the Centrum foundation starts each fall, has enjoyed record-level attendance, said Centrum director Robert Birman.

He reported that to date, chamber music ticket sales are 36 percent ahead of last season.

For the last performance of the series, festival artistic director Lucinda Carver has chosen a dream team of fellow musicians: violoncellist John Walz, pianist Robert Thies, violinist Roger Wilkie and violist Robert Brophy.

Namesake

They’re called the City of Angels Ensemble owing to Los Angeles, where they do most of their performing.

Carver, vice dean of the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California, knows their work well, as she has heard the players with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Long Beach Symphony and Los Angeles Opera.

In Sunday’s performance, the City of Angels Ensemble will travel from Schubert’s first piano trio and Faure’s first piano concerto to a Mozart sonata for violin and piano.
