(Sold out) February 5, 2023 – Duo Kayo

Duo Kayo packs a punch with cellist Titilayo Ayangade and violist Edwin Kaplan. With over 15 years of combined professional experience as members of the Thalea and Tesla String Quartets, this new and unusual ensemble is here to make a statement. Passionate about commissioning new works as well as championing the unsung heroes of the classical repertoire, the duo regularly hosts private live streams and performs live across the Northeast corridor.

(Sold out) March 5, 2023 – Trevor Stephenson and James Waldo (fortepiano and cello)

Fortepianist Trevor Stephenson and cellist James Waldo perform this all-Beethoven program featuring the two thrilling sonatas of opus 5—Opus 5 No. 1 in F major and Opus 5 No. 2 in G minor. Beethoven composed these works in his middle twenties, in 1796, while visiting Berlin. They represent the expressive pinnacle of fortepiano and classical cello writing.
