Faculty Recital: A Holiday Send-Off - Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

The University of Maryland School of Music presents:

A Holiday Send-Off

A recital featuring faculty artists: James Stern, violin Evelyn Elsing, cello James Ross, horn Mayron Tsong, piano

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 8:00 pm - Gildenhorn Recital Hall

School of Music faculty pool their talents to cook up a pre-Thanksgiving feast in the manner of an eclectic nouvelle cuisine for A Holiday Send-Off. James Ross sets aside his baton and warms up his horn to join Mayron Tsong and James Stern for Brahms’s iconic trio. Tsong offers a familiar warhorse paired with a little known gem by Chopin. Evelyn Elsing joins Stern to bring forth many flavors from few ingredients in Ravel’s 1922 sonata for that spare combination.
