Professors, Staff Joined by Community Musicians for Oct. 24 Performance
The College of Southern Marylands Piano Trio joins with community musicians to present the bi-annual Faculty Music Showcase at 8 p.m., Oct. 24 at the Leonardtown Campus, Building A, Auditorium, 22950 Hollywood Road, Leonardtown.
The trio, which consists of Adina Vallandingham, Jenete St. Clair and Dr. Stephen Johnson, will be joined by clarinetist Takako Mato and violist Bernard Vallandingham in an evening of chamber music by Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
Robert Schumann was one of the leading composers of Romantic song, piano music, chamber music and symphony. Clara, his wife, was one of the dominant pianists of her day, often premiering her husband's works as well as her own. The Schumanns were mentors to the young Brahms while he was establishing himself as a composer. All three wrote numerous beautiful works for piano and strings.
Tickets cost $5 in advance and $7 at the door. A Fall Ensemble Combo ticket may be purchased for $15 for admittance to five concert events on the La Plata Campus.
