ROME — Alliance Classical Players, a professional chamber music ensemble based in Rome, presents the Alliance Trio in two free local concerts this spring in New Hartford at Preswick Glen., on Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. and in Rome at Copper City Community Connection (the former Ava Dorfman Senior Center) on Wednesday, May 8 at 6 p.m.
The programs feature chamber music works by Mozart, Milhaud, Bach and Joplin.
Both concerts are free and open to the public.
The trio is comprised of musicians Elizabeth Evans, Kristin Kelly and Judy Marchione, performing on flute, clarinet and bassoon, respectively.
Each of the musicians of Alliance Trio performs with orchestras and chamber music groups throughout Central New York, including Clinton Symphony, Catskill Symphony, various collegiate orchestras, professional pit orchestras and small ensembles.
Evans is a graduate of New England Conservatory, and Kelly and Marchione are graduates of the Eastman School of Music.
All three are active as private teachers in the Utica-Rome area; Kelly and Evans also teach music in the school districts of Notre Dame and Holland Patent, respectively.
Each is also a member of Utica’s B Sharp Musical Club.
Alliance Trio has developed a varied repertoire of music meant to delight all types of audiences.
According to Marchione, Alliance Trio bassoonist, “performing outreach concerts in the community is something that we, as musicians, enjoy immensely. The chance to meet and bring classical music to new audience members is a treat! We’ve planned a program of lively, tuneful chamber music for our April and May concerts that we think folks will really enjoy.”
Concerts by Alliance Classical Players are supported in part with funding from the Sears Family Foundation, and from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.
