John Kleshinski Concert Series
The Gramercy Trio (Sharan Leventhal, Violin; Jonathan Miller, Cello; Randall Hodgkinson, Piano) tours the country presenting concerts and residencies, with programs that include standard repertoire and new works. They have commissioned and premiered trios by composers such as Gunther Schuller, Scott Wheeler, Lee Hyla, Grawemeyer-award winning British composer Simon Bainbridge, tango artist Sonia Possetti, and acclaimed jazz pianist and composer, Fred Hersch.
The New York Times has called their performances “distinctive and memorable… beautifully wrought and sensitively balanced” (Allan Kozinn), giving “the refreshing impression that everything they were doing was fun and worth hearing” (Anne Midgette). Jeremy Eichler of The Boston Globe called their project ‘Where Sound And Motion Meet’ “an ingenious program… the Gramercy’s performances throughout the night had the kind of kinesthetic energy and zest that hinted at the positive feedback loop between music and dance… the animating idea of a delightful evening.”
This concert is presented as part of the music center’s John Kleshinski Concert Series.
Named in memory of John Kleshinski, former music center board president and student, our concerts provide a great opportunity for everyone to enjoy a diverse sampling of musical instruments and genres. Our informal and family-friendly concerts are free (unless otherwise noted) and run approximately ninety minutes in length.
Please join us in Allen Hall for musical performances of exceptional quality, featuring our award-winning faculty, guest artists and advanced students.
