The University of Maine School of Performing Arts presents its Chamber Music concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, in Minsky Recital Hall.
Noreen Silver, music professor and cellist in Silver Duo, has put together a program of chamber works performed by student ensembles. Faculty members Phillip Silver, Eric Thomas and Liz Downing have provided coaching for the two- to eight-member groups.
The concert opens with W.A. Mozart’s “Trio in E flat K. 498,” performed by Benjamin McNaboe (clarinet), Olivia Bean (viola) and Abigail Gower (piano). Later, cellist Noreen Silver joins students Perla Fernandez, Gabrielle Price and Norah Bird for Antonin Dvořák’s “String Quartet Op. 96,” also known as the “American” Quartet. A sensuous arrangement of Maurice Ravel’s “Pavane for a Dead Princess” will be presented, as will the seldom-heard “Romance” by Sergei Rachmaninov. The University of Maine flute ensemble will complete the program with “Prelude and Rondo,” by Anne McGinty.
Admission is $9, or free with a student MaineCard. For tickets, call 207.581.4721. For disability accommodations, call 207.581.1755.
