One sure sign of spring is nearly here! Join us for the 10th Annual Fred Kelley Memorial Scholarship Concert on Sunday, April 9th at 2pm at Bell Street Chapel in the West End of Providence.
This year, the Hightower Trio, featuring Jesse Holstein, Jeff Louie and Heath Marlow, will perform a three-piece program including a late piano trio by Haydn, No. 44 in E major, a single movement piano trio by the great living American composer Joan Tower: “Trio Cavany” and the optimistic Beethoven Trio, op. 70 no. 2, (the so-called “Post-Ghost” Trio).
As many of you know, the concert is given in memory of Fred Kelley, a chamber music lover and great friend to CMW. All proceeds support sending CMW students to the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music, where Fred’s son Michael is in residence with the Apple Hill String Quartet.
