The Aspen String Trio
KENNESAW, Ga. (October 8, 2012) —
The Kennesaw State University Premiere Series will bring the world-renowned Aspen String Trio to Morgan Hall in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. With an extended artist-faculty relationship with the Aspen Music Festival, the trio places importance on pedagogy as well as performance.
“The players in The Aspen String Trio are unique because in addition to being virtuoso performers, they are also very accomplished teachers,” explains David Daly, director of the Bailey Performance Center and coordinator of the Premiere Series.
The Aspen String Trio consists of violinist David Perry, violist Victoria Chiang and cellist Michael Mermagen. Their twenty years of friendship and world-class talent provide audiences across the globe with impactful and energetic performances of Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert, as well as other lesser-known composers.
In addition to performing at KSU, the trio will engage directly with the students through master classes. Plans for several residency events will not only include musical instruction, but also practical advice on building a successful career in music. “I am really looking forward to these sessions because I feel that interacting with artists in this way is an invaluable experience for young musicians,” shares Daly.
