Concert to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month
On Saturday, September 14, at 2 p.m., the School Sisters of St. Francis are proud to welcome the Antioch Trio for their premiere performance as they present a program of tangos and other Latin music in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The trio are a family with Stefan Kartman on cello, Jeannie Yu on piano, and their son, Jonah Kartman, on violin. Stefan is a recording artist, soloist, chamber musician, author, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor of cello and chamber music. A Juilliard School of Music graduate, he has served on the faculties of numerous chamber music festivals and camps.
Acclaimed pianist Jeannie Yu appears frequently as a soloist internationally and throughout the United States, including with the symphonies of Flint, Michigan; Marina del Rey-Westchester, California; Des Moines, Iowa; and Xiamen, China. Ms. Yu completed her bachelor and master’s degrees as a scholarship student at Juilliard before receiving her Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore. Her chamber music credits include the Northwestern University Winter Chamber Music Festival and Milwaukee’s Frankly Music.
Jonah has been making his own mark on the music scene, performing a solo recital during the Steinway Gallery’s noonday series and the Brahms Violin Concerto in D Major with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra as a Stars of Tomorrow finalist.
Their program “Tango Familia” will include Astor Piazzola’s “Spring” and “Winter” from The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires; Franz Waxman’s Carmen Fantasie; Gaspar Cassadó’s Requiebros, and more.
Tickets are $15 and may be ordered by calling 414-385-5272 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
