Music In Midtown begins the spring semester with the Trio Entartete, a chamber group comprised of three of New York City’s most in demand performers: violist Junah Chung, pianist Eric Huebner, and saxophonist Tim Ruedeman. Their programs are a celebration of the life and music of a generation of composers who were suppressed by the Third Reich. The trio’s mission is to bring awareness to this wonderfully rich and diverse repertoire from composers whose voices have been silenced far too long.
Music in Midtown is a series of free lunchtime concerts spotlighting the highly regarded musical performance program at the CUNY Graduate Center. Presented in the warm, intimate, acoustically rich Elebash Recital Hall, these performances feature the music program’s renowned faculty, alumni, outstanding performers selected from students in the DMA program and noted guest artists. Some concerts are followed by a master class, which the public is invited to observe. Norman Carey is Director and Jacqueline Martelle is Assistant Director.
