The concert includes the world premiere of “Élégie-Lullaby”, a new composition by Ch’uqi.

Ch’uqi has performed across the United States and in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Bulgaria, Taiwan and Japan, as a fellow at Tanglewood for three years.

Violinist/composer Brandon Vance is the recipient of Scotland’s Royal National Mòd “Sutherland Cup” in 2017 in Scottish Fiddle, as well as being the youngest ever to win the US National Open Scottish Fiddling Championship.

Cellist Pierson has performed as a solo artist and chamber musician in the United States, England, Germany and Spain.

Bassist Doak is a member of the Northwest Sinfonietta and has performed with the Seattle Symphony, the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra and on numerous recording projects.

“We are deeply honored to present these outstanding international musicians and the world premiere of a heartfelt, lyrical piece by a major composer to the Cascadia Art Museum,” said museum volunteer Cal Lewin. “It’s wonderful to be able to hear such great musicians up close and personal, because chamber music was originally meant to be experienced.”

Tickets: $12 to $18. Information: http://www.cascadiaartmuseum.org/music-in-the-museum.
