Bridgehampton Chamber Music’s fall music series, BCM Autumn, returns on Saturday, October 29. Last year, the series kicked off with two events. This year, it’s coming back stronger and culminating with an additional holiday concert in December.

The first concert features the Calidore String Quartet. This will mark the group’s debut BCM performance, in which their program will include works by Wynton Marsalis, Dimitri Shostakovich, and Biedřich Smetana.

The November 12 concert includes pianist and composer Michael Stephen Brown, violinist Benjamin Beilman, and cellist Carter Brey. The trio will perform a set that includes works by Schubert.

Finally, the “Baroque Holiday” concert on December 10 stars BCM’s Artistic Director flutist Marya Martin. Martin has performed globally, at venues including London’s Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Violinists Kristin Lee and Arnaud Sussmann, violist Matthew Lipman, cellist Brook Speltz, and harpsichordist Kenneth Weiss will join Martin to play festive Baroque works.

The Saturday concerts take place at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church at five o’clock in the evening. For tickets and more information, visit bcmf.org.

“Nature Walk” Exhibit by Mats Gustafon and Ted Muehling in East Hampton

“Nature Walk” featuring work by Mats Gustafon and Ted Muehling will exhibit at The Drawing Room in East Hampton from Saturday, November 5 through Friday, December 23. Mats Gustafson’s watercolors and pastels will display alongside jewelry and decorative objects by Ted Muehling.

Both artists turn to the natural world for inspiration, which is evident in Gustafon’s paintings of swans, a rock, and a tree. Muehling’s work includes bells in the shape of eggs and a shell-shaped pin.

The Drawing Room features the work of contemporary and 20th century artists. The gallery is located at 55 Main Street and is open Friday through Monday from 11am until 5pm.
