Jennifer Elowitch: Much ado with chamber music

Classical music often gets the short shift in Portland, but it really shouldn’t. With nationally recognized talents like Jennifer Elowitch in our midst, we should all be talking about chamber music a little more often.

Co-founder of the Portland Chamber Music Festival (which kicks off Aug. 11) and assistant principal second violinist of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Elowitch spends much of her time with bow in hand. In the past, she’s appeared on WGBH public radio in Boston and on NPR’s “Performance Today,” and her musical stylings have accompanied the frantic, heady, modern choreography of the Mark Morris Dance Group. She also serves as the director of music at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Massachusetts.
