Professional Concert Series: Triple Helix Piano Trio and Wellesley Chamber Singers
Presented by The Arts at Wellesley Professional Concert Series at Jewett Auditorium
April 13, 2011
The Triple Helix Piano Trio was formed in 1995 by three award-winning chamber musicians and soloists: Bayla Keyes, founding violinist of the award-winning Muir String Quartet; Rhonda Rider, founding cellist of the Lydian String Quartet; and pianist Lois Shapiro, winner of the New York Concert Artists Guild Award. Composer Yu-Hui Chang was awarded a commissioning grant from the Barlow Endowment to write a new work for piano trio and women's chamber choir with text by Wellesley faculty poet Frank Bidart. It will premiere at Wellesley College on April 16, 2011. This lecture-recital will include a special advanced performance of the piece, and provide insight into the creative minds (performer, composer, and poet) that collaborated in bringing this new music to life.
