A violin, viola, cello, and piano walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Sorry, we don’t serve your kind here.” The instruments, feeling dejected, ask why. The bartender responds, “Because last time, you all got too keyed up and ended up stringing us along!”
But seriously, the Georgian Chamber Players (GCP) took the small stage at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia, last evening. By their own admission from the stage, they had played the venue before, so they knew exactly what they were in for, but more on that later.
The GCP is made up of violinist David Coucheron, violist Zhenwei Shi, and pianists Julie Coucheron and Elizabeth Pridgen. They were augmented by Charae Kruger on cello. The Coucherons are ubiquitous in the Atlanta classical music scene. Pridgen is the Artistic Director of the Atlanta Chamber Players, and Krueger is well-known for leading the cello section of the Atlanta Ballet and Opera Orchestras. Talented musicians all.
