An Evening of Diamonds

January 24, 2011: On February 8, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. Belhaven University’s Music department will present the Preston Chamber Music Series, “An Evening of Diamonds,” in Belhaven’s Concert Hall.

A wonderful juxtaposition of Brahm’s classical masterwork performed by Belhaven’s own “Belhaven Piano Trio” with Bizet’s delightful piano duet “Children’s Games” and P.D.Q. Bach’s outrageous spoof for piano duet entitled “The Sonata Innamorata” as presented by Dr. Stephen and Mrs. Carolyn Sachs. “Audience members can expect to experience musical profundity that enriches the soul, flashbacks to childhood through the musical presentation of the games they played, and some daring stage romance set to music,” said Dr. Stephen Sachs, Chair of the Music Department.

The Belhaven Piano Trio is comprised of Mississippi Symphony Orchestra principal cellist Mr. Bennett Randman and Belhaven faculty members Mr. Song Xie, violinist, and Dr. Stephen Sachs, pianist. All ages are invited to come for what is to be a truly pleasurable listening experience. Complimentary Admission. Doors open at 7:00.
