Sunday, June 21 at 4 p.m. — ROCHESTER — The Rochester Chamber Music Society opens their 21st season on Sunday, June 21 at 4 p.m. with acclaimed cellist Peter Stumpf. Hailed for his “faultless technique and panache” (Symphony Orchestra Reviews), Stumpf, a longtime member of the Johannes Quartet, will give his first solo appearance on the series. The program will include Bach Suite in C minor, Dutilleux Trios Strophes, and the Bach Suite in D major.

Peter Stumpf is professor of cello at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Prior to his appointment, he was the principal cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic for nine years following a 12-year tenure as Associate Principal Cellist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. At the age of 16, he began his professional career, winning a position in the cello section of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. He received a bachelor’s degree from the Curtis Institute of Music and an artist’s diploma from the New England Conservatory of Music. A dedicated chamber music musician, he is a member of the Johannes String Quartet, has performed with the chamber music societies of Boston, Philadelphia, and the Da Camera Society in Los Angeles, and is a participant at the Marlboro and Santa Fe chamber music festivals.

The afternoon concert at Rochester Federated Church will be followed with a light reception.
