Great Opportunity for Students!!!

Bloomington-Normal orchestra students have just been presented with a great opportunity to hear some fantastic live music by two of Central Illinois' premier musicians. The fastest way to grow a musician is to listen to professionals, and there is NO substitute for hearing professionals in a live setting. 

The recital will be Wednesday, November 14, at 7 p.m. in The Music Shoppe's recital hall.  All are welcome and the recital is free of charge.

The program will feature the following works:  Sonata in G Major, K.301 by W. A. Mozart, Three Romances, Op. 22 by Clara Schumann, Five Madrigal Stanzas by Czechoslovakian composer Bohuslav Martinu, and Sonata No. 2 in G, Op. 13 by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg.

Marcia Henry Liebenow, Concertmaster of the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, teaches violin, viola, and chamber music at Bradley University.  She leads a multi-faceted career as a recitalist, chamber musician and soloist.

As a pianist and collaborative artist, Andrea Molina has been an official accompanist for music organizations and ensembles across the country as well as serving as the principal pianist for the Peoria Ballet, Heartland Festival Orchestra and Peoria Symphony where she has appeared as guest soloist.
