Michelle Powell, Mary Lewers, Kelly Oliver, Sarah Fort

This recital wasn’t as pleasantly crowded as previous ones but was nevertheless very interesting and exciting. We had three duos and three “bonus” soloists.

Kelly Oliver and Sarah Fort premiered two pieces for violin and viola composed by Dr. Ravi Hanaan, and he was with us witnessing the premiere! Dr. Kanaan teaches strings in Manassas, VA, and he composed these two pieces specifically for students.

The classical guitar duo Ellen Lazarus and Barbara Freggens joined our Duetto club and presented three Baroque and one romantic pieces.

Carol Pew, cello, and Laura Garawski, piano, played beautiful and agitating Sonata of Vivaldi.

Mary Lewers, flute, presented a sophisticated but very melodic jazz etude by Bill Holcombe.

Ilya Rabinovich played two pieces by Schubert and Rameau, and Michelle Powell concluded the recital by passionate and virtuosic pieces by Chopin and Elgar.

Our dear friend Carol Henry came to cheer fellow musicians and take photos for posterity.
