BEYOND THE NOTES is an interactive concert experience that gives the audience a chance to get to know and learn about the performers beyond what can be read in their bios. Musical performances are combined with conversational vignettes as well as the chance for the audience to write down questions which are chosen at random throughout the evening. Following the concert, all answered questions are answered on the BEYOND THE NOTES website. Our guest artist for 2018 will be guitarist, composer, and author
Seeing Double Duo violinists Julia Salerno and Sarah Whitney with pianist Cynthia Huard will perform in concert on July 9, at 4 p.m. at the Federated Church in Rochester. The Rochester Chamber Music Series concert marks the opening of the Green Mountain Suzuki Institute, now in its 14th year.
The dynamism and astounding technique of the three artists makes for a not to be missed concert. The program will include Bach Double Concerto in D minor, Moszkowski Suite for Two Violins and Piano, Op. 71, and Sarasate’s “Navarra”.
Seeing Double is a unique concert of all duo violin music, proving that the music of two violins can be much more than the sum of their parts. Longtime best friends Sarah Whitney and Julia Salerno began performing duo violin concerts while studying together at the University of Michigan. Though currently residing on opposite coasts, Salerno is violin/viola professor at Eastern Washington University and Whitney is violinist in the NYC based quintet SYBARITE5.
