New York Philharmonic Musicians to Coach Student Chamber Ensembles and Perform at Hoff-Barthelson Music School

20th Annual Elaine Stamas New York Philharmonic Educational Residency set for April 10

Hoff-Barthelson Music School is pleased to announce its twentieth annual Elaine Stamas New York Philharmonic Educational Residency, featuring members of the New York Philharmonic, on Sunday, April 10, 2016, at the Music School, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale, New York. This program, held annually each spring, is named in honor of Elaine Stamas, the Music School’s long-time Board of Trustees member and supporter of the Philharmonic program, who passed away in 2010.

About the Educational Residency:
Four members of the Philharmonic, Anna Rabinova, violin; Qiang Tu, cello; Robert Rinehart, viola; and Mindy Kaufman, flute will coach student chamber music ensembles from 1:30 – 3:45 p.m.

Hoff-Barthelson’s chamber music program is a cornerstone of its entire performance curriculum; this season there are nearly 40 ensembles rehearsing and performing at the School. Students at all levels of proficiency are encouraged to explore the unique pleasure of making music with fellow young musicians. The New York Philharmonic Educational Residency gives twelve to sixteen of these ensembles the opportunity to perform for Philharmonic members, who share their comprehensive knowledge of ensemble playing and guide them to a higher understanding of technique, musicianship and musical style.

The public is invited to observe the Educational Residency free of charge.

About the Performance:
A chamber music recital featuring fourteen members of the Philharmonic along with guest artists will be presented at 5:00 p.m. The recital program will feature Dvořák’s Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 (Dumky); Beethoven’s String Quartet in F minor, Quartetto Serioso; and Hummel’s rarely heard Septet.

Admission to the recital is $28 general admission; $18 Seniors (65+); and free of charge for students. Program subject to change.
