Friday Evening Music Club – Season Finale

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Friday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. – University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg Campana Chapel

The Friday Evening Music Club of the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce our Season Finale, to be held will be held on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Campana Chapel and Lecture Hall on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg (UPG).

The recital will feature the winner of the club’s Mildred Gardner Scholarship Competition, violinist Martin Meyer, who, with pianist Liza Jennings Seiner, will perform the first movement of Violin Concerto No. 4 in G Major by Haydn, and the Canzonetta (2nd mvt) from Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Judges for this year’s competition, WSO principal flutist, Tom Godfrey and Seton Hill University professor emeritus, Marvin Huls, chose this year’s winner after hearing three finalists vying for the $2000 prize.

Two of the club’s pianist members will begin and end the recital. J.S. Bach wrote 48 preludes and fugues in two sets of 24, each written in a different key. Matt Klumpp will open the program with Prelude and Fugue #15 in G Major, BWV 860 from the second book of the Well-Tempered Clavier. Jacqueline Herbein has chosen to perform the first two Intermezzi and the Ballade from Six Pieces for Piano, Op. 118 by Brahms, who dedicated this introspective work to his dear friend, pianist Clara Schumann.

Admission is free to club members and voluntary donations are accepted from non-members at the door. All are invited to a reception following the recital.
