Summit Avenue Music Series "Tangos et cetera"
This Event Occurred in the Past.
The Summit Avenue Music Series (SAMS) is pleased to return to Chapel of the Christ at Martin Luther College for a fourth season of superlative and distinctive chamber music. The season, entitled Strings Attached, opens Sunday, September 15 at 3:00 pm with a vivacious and alluring concert of Latin and Classical repertoire. Accurately dubbed Tangos, et cetera, this first performance welcomes the return of Soh-Hyun Park Altino (violin), Leonardo Altino (cello), and SAMS artistic director Bethel Balge (piano). Together, the group will perform a wide variety of memorable works from Clara Schumann, Astor Piazzolla, Amy Beach, Gaspar Cassadó, Marlos Nobre, Joaquín Turina, and J.S. Bach. The Altinos will also give a free presentation "Growing up in Korea and Brazil: A Musical Journey", on Saturday, September 14, 10am, in the Chapel of the Christ.
Korean-born violinist Soh-Hyun Park Altino is highly regarded as a gifted teacher and versatile performer of solo and chamber music. Brazilian cellist Leonardo Altino has appeared as soloist and in recitals throughout Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Venezuela, Italy, Denmark, Greece, Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. Bethel Balge, artistic director and founder of the Summit Avenue Music Series, is a multiple award-winning pianist who collaborates frequently with other musicians and has performed as soloist and in recital in Germany, Russia, and the U.S.
