Cleveland State University’s East Center and Solon Center for the Arts present the second in the series of Chamber Music Collective concerts on Sunday, October 18 at 3:00 p.m. at Solon Center for the Arts.
This concert will feature the highly-acclaimed Almeda Trio. Concert-goers are also invited to a pre-concert ‘conversation’ with the artists at 2:15 p.m. in the Gallery and a ‘Meet the Artists’ reception immediately following the concert.
Almeda Trio members are Robert Cassidy, piano; Cara Tweed, violin; and Ida Mercer, cello. Each of these accomplished musicians is part of the faculty at The Music School Settlement, where the trio is in residence. Dr. Cassidy is also a member of the piano faculty at Cleveland State University.
The trio is named after Almeda Adams. This arts advocate, social activist, published author, composer, singer, voice teacher, pianist and philanthropist founded The Music Settlement in 1912. A great role model, she demonstrates that individuals can make a significant difference in their community.
The concert will feature Beethoven’s “Ghost” Trio, Copland’s Vitebsk, and Mendelssohn’s Trio in D Minor, Op. 49.
Tickets are $15 for reserved seating, $10 for seniors and students. Solon Center for the Arts is located at 6315 SOM Center Road, on the corner of Bainbridge and SOM Center Roads in Solon. For more information, or to reserve tickets by phone, call 440.337.1400.
