GREENVILLE, PA – Thiel College presents the Meadowmount Trio in concert at the David Johnson Memorial Chapel on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The spontaneity and energy of the Meadowmount Trio has established it as one of the world’s most celebrated ensembles. Ensemble-in-residence at the legendary Meadowmount School of Music in New York, the Meadowmount Trio has been captivating audiences since its formation in 1991.
Comprised of some of the most noted chamber musicians in the United States, the Trio’s current members include pianist James Giles, violinist Gerardo Ribeiro and cellist Owen Carman. Giles regularly performs in important musical centers across the world, including many cities in the United States as well as France, Italy, Bosnia and China. Giles is on the piano faculty of Northwestern University. Ribeiro has performed at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall and the Metropolitan Museum of Arts as well as the Kennedy Center. He is a featured soloist with major symphony orchestras throughout the world, including Philadelphia, Paris and Berlin and is a professor of violin at Northwestern University. Carman has been a guest artist with the Julliard Quartet and has performed on PBS television and National Public Radio. He has served as the director of the Meadowmount School since 1989.
The Meadowmount Trio is the second concert of Thiel’s new Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series, which began in fall 2007. Con Spirito presents one or two concerts each year, featuring top chamber music groups from across the country. The series was created in honor of the late daughter of Dr. Glen Johnson H’88, Thiel College Board of Trustees chairman emeritus, and his wife, LaVonne, both generous friends of the college. The home of the Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series is the David Johnson Memorial Chapel, dedicated in 2006 and named in honor of the Johnsons’ late son.
Thiel College, located in Greenville, Pa., is a liberal arts, sciences and professional studies college related to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
