Trio next on Chamber Music Series

The Allegro Chamber Trio will present the fourth concert of the 2006-2007 PSU Solo and Chamber Music Series at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, in McCray Recital Hall on the Pittsburg State University campus.

The Allegro Chamber Trio, based in Austin, Texas, is a rarely heard combination of flute, viola and harp. The group has performed extensively for the past 13 years and can be heard on a CD entitled “Debussy Ravel Bax,” on the Centaur Label, as well as on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today.”

The trio is made up of flutist Megan Meisenbach, harpist Mary Golden and violist Bruce Williams. Meisenbach and Golden are first-prize winners of the National Flute Association’s chamber music competition. They have performed together since 1976 and have been repeatedly honored with touring grants from the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the Texas Commission on the Arts. Meisenbach has also been chosen by the National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalist Award.

Williams is the former principal violist for the Haifa Symphony Orchestra and is currently the principal violist for the Austin Symphony, the Victoria Symphony, the Victoria Bach Festival Orchestra and the New Texas Festival Orchestra. He has performed as a soloist with the Orchestra of Santa Fe, the Austin Symphony and the Laredo Philharmonic Orchestra. Williams performs on a circa 1680 Grancino viola.

Tickets for the performance are $10 for the general public and $7 for persons over 65 or under 18. Full-time PSU students are entitled to a free ticket. Tickets are available in advance at the PSU Ticket Office in the Overman Student Center or at the door prior to the performance.

The PSU Solo & Chamber Music Series is supported by major funding from the PSU Student Government Association.
