How do musicians — who spend their lives giving concerts — go about raising funds for worthy causes? They give concerts, of course, as seventeen faculty members and students at the Cleveland Institute of Music will do on February 13 at 7:30 pm in CIM’s Mixon Hall to benefit the Cleveland Kosher Food Pantry.
The performance, co-sponsored by Music for Food and the CIM Student Government Association, will feature violin professor Jaime Laredo, cello professor Sharon Robinson, pianist Pin-Hsuan Huang, and student artists Minji Lee & Karisa Chiu, violin, Paolo Dara & Steven Song, viola, Cecelia Swanson, cello, Trey Floyd, tenor, and the Aeronaut Woodwind Quintet (Daniel Lopez, flute, Grayson Eichmeier, oboe, Shihao Hugh Zhu, clarinet, Brittney Delpey, bassoon & Liam McConlogue, horn).
The program will include Ernest Bloch’s “Nigun” from Baal Shem (1923), Valerie Coleman’s Tzigane for Wind Quintet (2011), Johannes Brahms’ String Sextet No. 2 in G, and a traditional spiritual arranged by Hall Johnson. [Read more…]
