Last updated 10/22/2018 at 10:20am

Harpist Elena Mashkovtseva is set to perform with Beth Ross Buckley on flute and Travis Maril on viola Oct. 28, at the Fallbrook Library as part of the Fallbrook Music Society's concert series.

FALLBROOK – Camarada returns to Fallbrook 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 28, for a performance featuring Elena Mashkovtseva on harp, Beth Ross Buckley on flute and Travis Maril on viola.

The performance will be held in the community room of the Fallbrook Library and is free to the public.

"Fallbrook Music Society is working hard to stretch the scope of classical music concerts we bring to our community and this concert has a wow factor of 10," executive director Ann Murray said.

Mashkovtseva is the "go to" harpist in the Western region. A graduate from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Mashkovtseva has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra of Russia, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, the Bolshoi Theatre and the National Radio and Television Orchestra of Moscow.

Since immigrating to the United States, Mashkovtseva has served as the principal harpist for Orchestra Nova, Baja California Orchestra, San Diego Symphony and appears frequently with San Diego Chamber Orchestra and San Diego Opera.

"Harp literature is especially diverse as the instrument lends itself to unique interpretation, so I hope this concert brings out people interested in learning about the harp, up close and personal, from someone who is truly, truly gifted," Murray said.

Joining Mashkovtseva is Camarada executive director Beth Ross Buckley. Buckley received her bachelor's degree in flute performance from St. Olaf College and her master's of music from the University of Minnesota. Buckley served as principal flute of the former San Diego Chamber Orchestra/Orchestra Nova and performs regularly for Broadway San Diego.

The program also features Travis Maril on violin and viola. Maril was a top prize winner at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and appears routinely in La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest and Mainly Mozart.

The concert begins with a 2:30 p.m. program preview. A reception immediately follows the concert on the Poet's Patio. For more information, visit
