Indianapolis Symphony musicians violinist Jayna Park and cellist Ingrid Fischer-Bellman will be joined by pianist Eugenio Urrutia-Borlando in two Romantic-era favorites, the Sonata for Violin and Piano by Richard Strauss and Anton Arensky's Trio for Piano, Violin, and Cello, as the Greencastle Summer Classical Music Festival continues Wednesday evening.
The concert is at 7:30 PM in the sanctuary of Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church. Admission is free, with donations accepted. York Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Greencastle, Inc., is the festival's main underwriting sponsor, with additional support from the DePauw School of Music, Arts at DePauw, Fine Print Books, and many individual donors.
"Jayna and Ingrid are both spectacular players," says Eric Edberg, Professor of Music at DePauw and Artistic Director of the Festival, "and Eugenio is well-known to Festival audiences from his prior appearances this and in past summers. The audience is in for a real treat!"
