CANCELED… Due to an illness, the residency has to be rescheduled for October 2022 with exact dates to be confirmed shortly.

The Parrish Cello Trio makes its debut in Greenville, SC, next week on May 23-38, with a master class, concert and live-stream. Comprised of cellists Jamie Clark, Kenny Lee and Seth Russell (DMA ’19), the trio first met and played together during their undergraduate degree at Eastman School of Music, and then continued their education together at New England Conservatory. Now, while based in three different states, they are getting together in South Carolina to perform for online and local communities.

Next week. on Thursday and Friday, May 12-13, Austin Camerata, with Artistic Director Daniel Kopp (MM ’18), presents “Blue Planet” at the KMFA Draylen Mason Music Studio. Blue Planet is an evocative performance on a bold mission: to celebrate the beauty of planet Earth and reflect on what’s at stake in the 21st century. The performance juxtaposes powerful works for string orchestra with the origins of our universe, our place in the cosmos, and Earth’s precious landscapes. The performance will feature Austin Camerata’s conductor-less string orchestra with cellists Kopp, Cory Blais (MM ’19) and Yeyoung Yoo (DMA ’23), visual design by Jesse Easdon, and art by Zaria Forman.
