Play it Forward: The Bernard Greenhouse Concert


Join us for a performance by world-class cellist Amit Peled and his Mount Vernon Virtuosi Orchestra, with proceeds benefiting the rebuilding and expansion of the OCHS Wellfleet Health Center. Advance tours of the new Wellfleet Health Center will be available to all concert goers on June 12 from 5pm-6pm.


This year's concert caps off the concert series founded by Bernard Greenhouse, an internationally acclaimed cellist and founding member of the Beaux Arts Trio who died in 2011 at the age of 95. Play it Forward was the brainchild of Mr. Greenhouse, a Wellfleet resident and OCHS supporter and patient.


The Mount Vernon Virtuosi Orchestra, a new chamber orchestra established by Peled, a John Hopkins Peabody Conservatory cello faculty artist, is dedicated to nurturing and training recently graduated music students. The Orchestra investigates and recreates cohesive programs of classical concerts from the 19th century. The Greenhouse program will feature separate movements of pieces, solo playing, verbal engagement with the audience, poetry and more. The program will include:

  • Mozart: Divertimento in D, KV 136
  • Joachim Stutchewsky: Hassidic Suite
  • Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky: Serenade for String Orchestra, op. 48
