CMI will start the new calendar year with Concert #4, combining five incredible artists will include unforgettable evening of music and awareness to help fight against hunger.
Concert #4 will feature 2014-2015 CMI Artist of the Season, Violinist Paul Rosenthal; award-winning cellist Bion Tsang; a prominent Scottish Violist Paul Coletti;1997 Van Cliburn Winner Jon Nakamatsu; and local talent, violinist Clare Cason.
The concert will begin with Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola in G Major, and then increase the ensemble size to perform Brahm’s Piano Trio in C Major, Op. 8. To conclude, the outstanding quintet will perform Franck’s Piano Quintet in F Minor. All of the classical chamber ensembles showcase the Artists’ gifted musicality and technical abilities.
CMI is collaborating with Music for Food, a Boston-based organization that works to share awareness of the fight against hunger through music. They connect concert presenters with food pantries nationwide and share parts of the proceeds from the concerts with local food banks. For Concert #4, CMI will donate fifty percent of its single ticket sales to The Network, a Richardson group founded in 1985 with the mission of “caring, coaching, and empowering neighbors in need as they seek an improved quality life.”
