The Manhattan Piano Trio arrives on the HWS campus on Tuesday, Oct. 5 for a truly unique musical performance. Members of the group are known for their vivacious performances, and turn from conventional classical music. Thanks to their prolificacy, The Manhattan Piano trio, comprised of Wayne Lee playing the violin, Dmitry Kouzov playing the cello, and Milana Strezeva on piano, has performed more than 300 concerts in over 30 states, and is one of the most active classical music groups today.
This concert marks the second time that the critically acclaimed group has visited the Colleges. Described as “impressive” and “outstanding” by the Washington Post, the trio is slated to perform at 8 p.m. in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.
The group has also been declared “a grand departure from the usual,” and has been awarded many prizes since its founding in 2004. The Manhattan Trio, whose origins are rooted in the Julliard School of Music, won the Grand Prize of the 2006 Plowman National Chamber Music Competition, as well as the 2007 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition.
Admission to the performance is free, though donations will be accepted.
