You may have noticed it’s been a busy week in the Concert Hall. With “Quiet, Recording in Progress” signs and long yellow wires everywhere it was pretty hard to miss. All throughout this week, musicians from Trinity Wall Street were in and out of the DOYO finishing up a recording of Handel’s famous oratorio “Messiah”.
The activity continues this weekend with the final installment in the daCamera concert series for the 2016-2017 season. The daCamera concert series brings professional musicians from all over the world to present intimate genres in the excellent acoustics of the Concert Hall.
Saturday night’s concert features the Morgenstern Trio, a German piano ensemble who met while studying together at the Folkwang Conservatory in Essen, Germany. The trio, comprised of Catherine Klipfel, piano, Stefan Hempel, violin, and Emanuel Welshe, cello, has received wide acclaim and success in both the German and American music scenes. After being awarded the prestigious U.S. Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio Award in 2010, the Morgenstern Trio has gone on to perform at Carnegie Hall, Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center and beyond.
The program will include works by modern composers Frank Bridge and Maurice Ravel, proving further that this concert is not to be missed. The concert starts at 8 p.m. with a pre-concert chat with the artists at 7:15 p.m. General admission is $30, but starting at 7 p.m., admission is free for Drew students.
