The Arts at Trinity

THE ARTS AT TRINITY presents the Serafin Ensemble in the beautiful acoustics of Trinity’s sanctuary on Sunday, May  22 at 4:00 pm. Serafin roster artists for this concert are violinist Kate Ransom; violist Amadi Azikiwe (in from New York City); Jacques-Pierre Malan, South African cellist now residing in Baltimore; and countertenor, Augustine Mercante. Joining the Serafins for this performance is internationally acclaimed pianist, Read Gainsford, a New Zealander who now makes his home in Florida.  This concert will feature each artist in works that place them in the spotlight: Mr. Azikiwe will play the famed Arpeggione Sonata by Franz Schubert, Mr. Malan will perform the sumptuous Le Grand Tango by Astor Piazzolla, and Ms. Ransom will be featured in the lovingly expressive A Major Sonata of Johannes Brahms. Mr. Gainsford will be at the keyboard for all of these works, as well as for a set of songs performed by Mr. Mercante. The program will finish with the ensemble performing Gabriel Faure’s intense and lusciously beautiful Piano Quartet in C Minor.  As with all TAAT concerts, there is no charge for admission to the performance, but donations are graciously accepted before and after the performance.  Bring a friend and enjoy an afternoon of gorgeous music!
