String Trio, a Chestnut Hill Outreach Concert
Enjoy a breathtaking string trio performance with three rising stars: violinist Katie Hyun, violist Kyle Miller, and cellist Hannah Collins. For the last six years, Chestnut Hill has introduced talented young musicians to audiences at Essex Meadows. Designed by pianist and Chestnut Hill Concerts board member Mihae Lee in consultation with Chestnut Hill Concerts artistic director Ronald Thomas, this year’s concert, featuring three magnificent string artists, will be just as uplifting.
A wine and cheese reception and opportunity to meet the artists will follow the performance.
About the artists: Described as “a virtuoso by anyone’s measure” (The Berkshire Review), violinist Katie Hyun has made solo appearances with the Houston Symphony, the Dallas Chamber Orchestra, and the Columbia Festival Orchestra, among others. She is the founder and director of Quodlibet Ensemble and a founding member of the award-winning Amphion String Quartet. Violist Kyle Miller is a graduate of the Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program and was recently selected to be an English Concert American Fellow. He is a founding member of ACRO- NYM, Diderot String Quartet, and New York Baroque Incorporated. Cellist Hannah Collins, winner of De Linkprijs 2010 for contemporary interpretation, is a dynamic performer devoted to di- verse forms of musical expression. She recently completed a two-year tenure with Ensemble ACJW, a professional development program focused on chamber music performance, teaching artistry, and arts advocacy through the resources of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute, in partnership with the New York City Department of Education.
Chestnut Hill Concerts is dedicated to fostering the appreciation and enjoyment of classical music for audiences on the Connecticut Shoreline. Each summer, Chestnut Hill provides world-class chamber music from its home base at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook. Essex Meadows is delighted to partner with Chestnut Hill Concerts once again for this stirring string trio concert.
