New York Philharmonic Musicians To Perform At Hoff-Barthelson Music School
Hoff-Barthelson Music School's 2019 Elaine Stamas New York Philharmonic Educational Residency, featuring members of the New York Philharmonic, will be held Monday, April 8, 2019, at the Music School, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale, New York. A concert featuring members of the NY Philharmonic takes place at 7:30 pm; Chamber Music Master Classes will be held from 3:30-5:45 pm.
Join us for a rare opportunity to enjoy a concert of some of the greatest works from the chamber music repertoire performed by world-renowned musicians in an intimate setting. The concert, featuring members of the New York Philharmonic, begins at 7:30 pm. Included on the program are Astor Piazzolla's Three Tangos arranged for violin and bass; Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 2; and Igor Stravinsky's masterful L'Histoire du soldat. A reception hosted by The Friends of Hoff-Barthelson follows.
The Educational Residency with the New York Philharmonic, now in its 23rd year, gives HBMS students the opportunity to perform for members of the New York Philharmonic who share their comprehensive knowledge of ensemble playing with these young musicians, guiding them to a higher understanding of technique, musicianship and musical style. Four members of the Philharmonic - Leah Ferguson, viola; Eric Huebner, piano; Anna Rabinova, violin; and Pavel Vinnitsky, clarinet, will coach student chamber music ensembles. This residency is named in honor of Elaine Stamas, a long-time supporter of the School's Philharmonic program and member of the Board of Trustees.
Admission to the concert is $28 general admission; $18 Seniors (60+); and free of charge for students. Admission to the Master Classes is free of charge. Seating is limited. Program and artists are subject to change. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made by calling 914-723-1169 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Master classes and chamber music have been a foundation of Hoff-Barthelson's educational philosophy since the School was founded in 1944. From their earliest stages of proficiency, students are encouraged to participate in chamber ensembles, an opportunity that provides the unique pleasure of making music with others. Students explore rich chamber music literature under the guidance of Hoff-Barthelson faculty members who are themselves active in New York City's vibrant chamber music scene.
Hoff-Barthelson Music School has achieved national recognition as a premier community music school for its unsurpassed leadership in education, performance and community service. With a faculty drawn from the region's most talented teachers and performers, the School has long been one of Westchester County's most cherished cultural resources. Whatever a student's age or level of musical interest, HBMS' diverse offerings provide the highest quality musical education, personally tailored to his or her specific passions and goals in a supportive and vibrant community.
Programs of Hoff-Barthelson Music School are made possible, in part, by ArtsWestchester with support from Westchester County Government, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
