On Monday, Feb. 1, Eastman School of Music faculty and students will be joined by special guests for the second in a series of chamber music concerts to benefit Rochester’s Foodlink, a non-profit regional food bank that distributes food to soup kitchens, shelters and emergency food pantries, and to non-emergency programs such as group homes, and senior centers.
The concert takes place at 7 p.m. at Saint Paul’s Church, 25 Westminster Rd., Rochester, and includes music by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Johannes Brahms.
Eastman School Professor of Voice Katherine Ciesinski and several of her students will perform Vaughan Williams’s Magnificat with organist Robert Poovey, Director of Music at St. Paul’s Church. The second half of the program will feature Brahms’s Piano Quartet in G Minor performed by Philadelphia-based concert pianist and teacher Marcantonio Barone; Wendy Sharp, violin and chamber music faculty member at Yale University; Eastman Professor of Viola Carol Rodland; and Scott Kluksdahl, Professor of Cello at the University of South Florida.
