The Morningside Camerata will present a concert on Thursday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Avenue. The free concert is open to the public.
The Camerata will perform Haydn’s “Divertimento,” Hindemith’s “Trauermusik,” music from the feature film “Psycho” by Bernard Hermann, and Holst’s “St. Paul Suite.”
Members of the Camerata include Euclid Quartet members Jameson Cooper, Amy Joseph, Jacob Murphy, and Luis Vargas; Morningside College students Ilisja Moreland, Sam Becker, Judy Leinen, Brooke Sloup, Yuki Takishima, Justin Taylor, Andrew Goodell, Katie McGuire, and Kaitlin Wright; Lissa Kelsey, student of the Leo Kucinski Academy of Music; and Joseph Shufro, associate professor of music at Morningside College. Vargas, a violist, will perform as soloist for “Trauermusik.”
The Morningside Camerata is a student-faculty collaboration organized in 2005 to take advantage of the Euclid Quartet’s residency at Morningside College and to provide a venue for the growing number and quality of string students who study at Morningside. The group, which performs without a conductor, will travel and perform in the United Kingdom and Ireland in May.
