Ties to Tidewater

Posted on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 1:03 pm

The Rappahannock Concert Association launched its 2019-2020 season Saturday with a performance by The Tidewater Trio before a full house in the Northumberland High School auditorium.

Since the three performers, Christopher Philpotts (oboe), Hugh Michie (bassoon) and Michael Chertock (piano) are all from Cincinnati and perform with that city’s symphony, the name was a perplexity until Chertock explained it. All three have Tidewater, Va., connections. Chertock lived in Virginia Beach as a youngster. Philpotts grew up in Norfolk and Michie’s parents retired to Fleeton near Reedville

The trio performed pieces together, some as soloists and some as duos meaning Chertock accompanied one of the others on piano.
