Guitarist Martha Masters leads an in-depth master class with Community School students, offering a rare glimpse into the artistic, creative, and learning processes.
Masters achieved international recognition in 2000 when she won first prize in the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition. Since then, she has been active as a solo recitalist, chamber musician, recording artist, concert soloist, and educator.
Music Academy students show off their talents in this intimate recital series featuring a delightful mix of repertoire.
This performance will be livestreamed.
The season opens with a virtuosic performance of Brahms's beloved violin concerto, played by the 2022 Conservatory Concerto Competition winner. This romantic masterpiece is followed by Stravinsky's primal and percussive ballet The Rite of Spring. Join us in the lower lobby at 6 pm for an intimate pre-concert conversation with guest conductor Roderick Cox and Martin Beaver, violin faculty and the soloist's teacher.
