Chameleon Arts Ensemble resumes its popular Up Close recital series with a program of harp trios at the crossroads of the old and the new, featuring flutist Deborah Boldin, violist Scott Woolweaver, and harpist Franziska Huhn. Debussy’s classic recalls the elegance of the French baroque, enrobed in his gorgeous 20th century sound world. Sofia Gubaidulina’s Garden of Joy and Sorrows similarly blends past and present through delicate whispers and otherworldly effects. Rounding out the program are Rameau’s Pièces de clavecin en concerts No. 5 in d minor, Arthur Foote’s At Dusk, and Ravel’s Sonatine en Trio. The Boston Musical Intelligencer called Mr. Woolweaver “one of Boston’s most respected violists” and noted, “Huhn produced a multitude of colors—breathtaking in the upper registers.” The Boston Globe praised Ms. Boldin for “surpassingly beautiful contributions.”

The performance will take place in Mary Norton Hall at Old South Church, transformed into an intimate cabaret setting with table seating and refreshments. Tickets are $49, with $5 off for students and seniors. For more information or to order tickets, please call 617-427-8200 or visit
