Langroise Trio Returns to the Stage for 2006-2007 Concert Season
2006. 09. 25.
Albertson College of Idaho's Artists in Residence, the Langroise Trio, will kick-off this year's concert series this weekend.
The Trio's first performance will feature the work of two Romantic Era composers Herzogenberg, a contemporary of Brahams, and Taniev, a contemporary of Tchaikovsky, and a Nocturne by Sammartini.
"The program gives the audience some exposure to romantic composers that they may not be very familiar with," Cellist Sam Smith said. "They were selected because they're full-size romantic pieces, while Sammartini's is decidedly not from the Romantic Era, so there is also a nice variety."
Music lovers will have two opportunities to enjoy the program. The first concert will be presented at the Esther Simplot Center for the Performing Arts in Boise on Friday, September 29, at 7:30 p.m. The cost for the concert is $10 for adults and $5 for students. A free concert will be presented on Saturday, September 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Langroise Recital Hall on the Albertson College of Idaho campus.
The next concert Langroise Trio concert will be presented on January 19 and 20 and will feature guest artists Robin Wells on piano and Corey McKnight as counter tenor.
The Langroise Trio is made up of Geoffrey Trabichoff, violin; David Johnson, viola; and Samuel Smith, cello. Established in 1991 with a gift from arts patron Gladys Langroise, the Langroise Trio is Artists-in-residence at Albertson College of Idaho, where they form the string faculty. They have performed on chamber music series in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, their fourth CD is in the planning stage, and the Trio was one of the first groups to give an 'internet archived' concert on the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center.
The Langroise Trio's residency at Albertson College provides a unique chamber music emphasis with coaching sessions, weekly master classes and performances. The residency allows students direct access to members of the Trio and offers intensive training in violin, viola and cello within a traditional liberal arts curriculum. In addition, advanced students are encouraged to audition for a Boise Philharmonic internship enabling them to perform with a metropolitan-level professional orchestra while in college.
