The dictionary definition of “frisson,” is “{span}a sudden strong feeling of excitement.” And that’s precisely what will ripple through the chapel at Neskowin’s Camp Winema this Sunday, April 7, as the{/span} Frisson Ensemble takes to the stage.

These nine, acclaimed string and wind musicians, led by noted oboist Thomas Gallant, are the latest offering from the Neskowin Chamber Music series.

Joining Gallant on stage are Jeremias Sergiana Velazquez on violin, Caeli Smith on viola, Julian Schwarz on cello, Sam Suggs on double bass, Ji Weon Ryu on flute, Stas Chernyshev on clarinet, Gabriela Gonzalez-Briceno on bassoon and Nathan Silberschlag on French horn.

Gallant, who won first place at the Concert Artist Guild International competition, last appeared at Neskowin in March 2017 with the Adaskin String Trio. He has also appeared as a guest soloist with the Kronos Quartet at the Ravinia Festival and with the Colorado, Calder and Lark Quartets.

Described by critics as “the best and brightest” of classical music’s rising stars, the Frission Ensemble performs rarely heard masterworks, including quintets, sextets, nonets and small chamber orchestra pieces.

Sunday’s concert will start at 3 pm in the chapel at Camp Winema, located three miles north of Neskowin, just off Highway 101.

Tickets are $25 at the door. For more information, call 503-965-6499 or go to www.neskowinchambermusic.org.
