SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s 2017 New York Philharmonic Educational Residency, featuring members of the New York Philharmonic, will take place on Monday, April 24, at the school in Scarsdale.
The Educational Residency with the New York Philharmonic, now in its 21st year, gives 12 HBMS chamber ensembles the opportunity to perform for New York Philharmonic members, who share their comprehensive knowledge of ensemble playing with these young musicians as they guide them to a higher understanding of technique, musicianship and musical style, according to a release from HBMS.
Four members of the Philharmonic, Lisa E. Kim, violin; Kuan-Chen Lu, violin; Rebecca Young, viola; and Mindy Kaufman, flute, will coach student chamber music ensembles from 3:45 – 5:45 pm.
The public is invited to observe the Educational Residency free of charge.
The coaches will be joined by their New York Philharmonic colleagues in an 8:00 p.m. recital, which includes works by Brahms, Paganini, Busch and Persichetti.
Renowned pianist Peter Serkin will settle in with his Philharmonic musical colleagues for the Piano Quintet of Adolf Busch, the pianist’s grandfather.
Admission to the recital is $28 for general admission; $18 or seniors (65-plus); and free of charge for students. Program and artists are subject to change.
To make a reservation to attend the afternoon session, purchase tickets for the evening recital, or for additional information, call (914) 723-1169 or e-mail 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, the release said.
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 is at 25 School Lane, Scarsdale.
