Chamber Concert Series (September)

Joel & Mariam


On Sunday, September 11th at 3 p.m., the Phelps Mansion Museum will present Saxophonist Joel Diegert and Pianist Mariam Vardzelashvili during its Chamber Concert Series at 191 Court Street in Binghamton.

Diegert and Vardzelashvili started out as street musicians. Their act is a mixture of classical and popular music and comedy routines. These terrific musicians — from five different countries — have toured worldwide, all based in Vienna.

Diegert is a dynamic musician, representing a new, young generation of international saxophonists. He has won several major international competitions and performs in the US and throughout Europe. He will perform with Vardzelashvili, who was born in Georgia and studied at the Tbilisi State Conservatory until the age of 20. When she moved to the States, she completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. She has won several competitions, including the P. Konjevich Competition for Young Musicians, F. Chopin International Competition for Young Pianisits, and the Dr. Marjorie Conrad Peatee Art Song Competition.

Admission is $15 for the general public, $10 for museum members, and $5 for children and students with I.D. Children under 13 are free. Tickets can be purchased online. For more information, please call (607) 722-4873 or email us at Tickets will be sold at the door.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from the United Cultural Fund, a program of the Broome County Arts Council, and with public funds from the Chenango Arts Council’s Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature. Additional support for Broome County provided by the Stewart W. & Willma C. Hoyt Foundation.
