The Saint Vincent College Concert Series will present eight world-class musical performances during its 41st season.
“Our 40th Anniversary Season was a resounding success,” commented Br. Nathan Cochran, O.S.B., artistic director of the Series. “We had record-breaking attendance and levels of giving – thank you for making that possible! We hope to continue that momentum and continue to grow with our 2012-2013 Season!”
“Our world-class performers for the 2012-2013 Series will come from near and far, and perform a broad overview of Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic and Modern Classical music; and, for an added twist, it will include Monroe Crossing, a Minnesota Classic American Bluegrass and Gospel ensemble that has been winning accolades everywhere it performs,” he added.
“The season will begin with a performance on oboe by Andrea Ridilla, a Latrobe native, who has performed throughout the United States, Europe and South America,” he continued. “This will mark her sixth performance on the series. The Bronder Prize for Piano will be awarded to a young pianist from North Carolina, Andrew Tyson, who is already garnering critical acclaim. Veit Hertenstein, a Dutch violist has won major international competitions and has performed throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. The Guidonian Hand Trombone Quartet from New York will be performing an intriguing all-Viennese program for trombone. The New Trio will be performing an all-Beethoven program of piano trios for violin, cello, and piano. If you are a Broadway fan, you may remember Sylvia Rhyne of Asteria, who played Christine in Phantom of the Opera. She will be joined by her husband, Eric Redlinger, in their performance of Renaissance love songs for voice and lute. Tempesta di Mare’s Baroque Chamber Ensemble will be performing on period instruments and perform German and Italian Baroque works.”
The schedule for the 2012-2013 Series includes Andrea Ridilla, oboe, September 8; Monroe Crossing, bluegrass, October 5; Andrew Tyson, piano, November 3; The Guidonian Hand, trombone quartet, November 30; The New Trio, January 26, 2013; Asteria, Renaissance Duo, February 23, 2013; Tempesta di Mare – Philadelphia Baroque Chamber Players, March 23, 2013; and Veit Hertenstein, viola, April 20, 2013.
All of the performances begin at 8 p.m. in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center on the campus of Saint Vincent College. Continuing this season is a free shuttle to and from the concert to the parking areas.
