Knoxville and Mexico
With a friendly nod to “Cinco de Mayo,” this Mexican-infused program highlights Sergio Emilio Parra Aguilera’s Escenas de la Infancia and Aaron Copland’s El Salon Mexico for two pianos. Two American works provide contrast - Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with soprano Carline Waugh and pianist Ayako Tsuruta, and Charles Ives’ Sonata, performed by violinist Amy Appold and pianist Peter Miyamoto. Look forward to Silvestre Ruvueltas' songs performed by mezzo-soprano Julia Bentley, pianist Natalia Bolshakova and the Esterhazy String Quartet. Please join us in a joyous Mexican feast at the reception

Esterhazy Quartet, pianists Natalia Bolshakova, Peter Miyamoto and Ayako Tsuruta; Amy Appold, violin; Carline Waugh and Julia Bentley, mezzo-soprano
