Hoff-Barthelson’s Esteemed Faculty Set to Dazzle Audiences in Fifth HB Artist Series Concert

Hoff-Barthelson Music School proudly announces the fifth installment of its celebrated HB Artist Series, spotlighting the remarkable talents of its faculty members. Mark your calendars for Friday, March 1, 2024, at 7:30 pm, as the Joan Behrens Bergman Auditorium at 25 School Lane, Scarsdale, NY, sets the stage for an evening of musical excellence.

The concert will showcase the extraordinary talents of faculty performers Michael Finckel and Peter Seidenberg on cello, April Johnson on violin, and pianists Dominic Meiman, Vered Reznik, Katsura Tanikawa, and Tomoko Uchino.

  • Piano Trio in B flat Major No 1, Op. 898 by Franz Schubert: A delightful blend of elegance and charm, this trio transports listeners with its graceful melodies and intricate interplay between violin, cello, and piano.
