Sept. 25: Rawlins Piano Trio
Performance set for Halling Recital Hall.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Music Department News Release, 9-4-2012
MANKATO, Minn. – The Rawlins Piano Trio will perform Tuesday, Sept. 25 at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The Performance Series concert will be at at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
The trio members (pictured at left), pianist Susan Keith Gray, violinist Eunho Kim and cellist Marie-Elaine Gagnon, are members of the University of South Dakota Department of Music. The group will present a workshop for the University Orchestra as part of their visit to Minnesota State Mankato.
Since its founding in 1987, the Rawlins Piano Trio has distinguished itself as a dynamic group of performers, teachers and scholars. Touring regularly throughout the United States and abroad—most recently in Taiwan and Panama—the artists combine school visits and master classes with performances in a variety of concert venues. Their repertoire is equally diverse, ranging from the standard repertoire to new and undiscovered works deserving to be brought into the limelight. Owing to its expertise as a preeminent interpreter of American music, the ensemble has recorded four CDs of these works on the Albany Records label.
Concert admission is $12; $11 for students with a valid MavCard. Discount tickets are available online for University students. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged. Those who wish to purchase tickets online should go to www.mnsu.edu/music. For more information, call the Performance Series office, (507) 389-5549.
