Mohawk Trail Concerts will introduce a bit of musical levity, along with a more straight-forward Brahms, in the person of clarinetist/comedian Christopher Hall Saturday, July 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Federated Church on Route 2 in Charlemont.

At the top of the program, Hall will entertain with a mixture of music and comedy.  After the intermission he will join Joel Pitchon and Masako Yanagita, violins, Ronald Gorevic, viola, and Volcy Pelletier, cello, in the nostalgic late-Brahms Quintet for Clarinet and Strings.

New to the Charlemont stage, Hall is the former principal clarinet of the Orchestre Metropolitain in Montreal.  In recent years he has regaled audiences with his acclaimed concert ‘Comic Orchestra’ at comedy festivals throughout Canada. 

No stranger to MTC, Joel Pitchon is active as a soloist, concertmaster and chamber music player in the U.S., Canada and abroad.  Masako Yanagita is concertmaster of the Queens (NY) and Springfield Symphony Orchestras, and a core member of MTC since its inception and now its Associate Artistic Director. 

 Ron Gorevic has had a long and distinguished career as a performer and teacher, on both the violin and viola. As a violist he has been a member of several well known string quartets, spanning over twenty years, and covering most of the quartet repertoire. He has toured throughout the U.S., Germany, Japan, Korea and Australia, and has also been broadcast on radio. 

 A native of Paris, Volcy Pelletier has been featured in chamber music concerts and given solo recitals in the U.S. and in Europe.  She is on the faculty of the Greenwood Music Camp and is adjunct instructor of cello at Smith College.

Tickets to the concert are $20 on line at  and at the box office, cash and checks only.  Children under 16 are admitted free. Box office opens at 6:45, doors open at 7 p.m.
