For about ten years, the Piatigorsky Foundation of New York has been sending high class musicians to play at the Woods House Conservatory of Music. They have not stopped. The new Music and Art Center at Wenatchee Valley College will host a concert violinist a week from tonight at the beautiful, acoustically refined hall called The Grove.
The violinist, Linda Rosenthal of Juneau, Alaska, is a well-known soloist and chamber music performer, and the artistic director of Juneau’s annual music festival. She will be accompanied by another nationally-known player, pianist John Dowling of New York and Houston.
One of the requirements of the foundation is that their performances are free. The foundation was formed by the grandson of the late renowned cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, Evan Drachman, himself a cellist using his grandfather’s cellos. And we will be hearing him next spring at The Grove.
The Nov. 16 performance is sponsored by the Wenatchee Valley College Foundation, which requests you notify them if you are coming, telephone number 682-6410.
