The Coffeehouse at Fuller Lodge served up slices of cake and helpings of Chamber music for years before shutting down. Now, the music coffeehouse is back open for business and will open its doors to the public at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at Fuller Lodge.  The event, which the Los Alamos Arts Council is sponsoring, will kick off the music at 8:15 p.m.  The program will feature compositions for solos, duos and trios. Violinist and violist Kay Newnam, violinist Martha Caplin, flutist Nancy Andrew and harpist Rosalind Simpson will perform the musical pieces by Bartok, Debussy, Persichetti, Mozart, Massenet and Puccini.  Simpson said the centerpiece of the program is Debussy’s sonata for flute, harp and viola.  “It’s one of the most important chamber music pieces for harp ever written,” Simpson said. “It’s a milestone for harp composition and literature.”  Andrew said while the whole program features strong works, Debussy’s sonata is special. “I’m looking forward to the whole program,” she said. “It’s always a pleasure to perform the Debussy trio.
