Petit Quatuor Plays For Mustard Seed Food Bank

Petit Quatuor, so named by its members, because the members are, by their own estimate, of diminutive stature, performed for The Mustard Seed community service organization this past week.

Congratulations, PQ—Baylie, Ayari, Alex and Ben—for your initiative and service to others.

Faculty and Students in Concert

Given the high standard of performance demonstrated by our students, it is not uncommon that the most advanced students join faculty members in recital. Faculty chamber concerts have included graduate and undergraduate students alongside their professors (La Creation du Monde by D. Milhaud; Quest by G. Crumb). Graduate pianist Eva Hodge and her teacher Mr. Bruce Vogt, the distinguished teacher and performer of Listz's works, joined Mr. Clanton on Graham Fitkin's Hard Fairy (soprano saxophone and two pianos), as well as for the performance of several neoclassical and twentieth century works on his 2010 recital.
