Upcoming Piano Concerts at Bjorklunden

Lawrence University’s Bjorklunden is featuring a piano concert on Tuesday, September 1 at 7:30 pm. The Arcos Trio, comprised of Seunghee Lee, Carl Donakowski and Anthony Padilla, will be performing.

Arcos Trio concerts blend a re-exploration of the classics with performances of lesser-known works and the music of our own time, particularly emphasizing works by American, Latin American and women composers. Arcos Trio members Lee (violinist and professor at Central Michigan University), Donakowski (associate professor of cello and head of the string section at James Madison University), and Padilla (professor of piano and chamber music at Lawrence University Conservatory of Music in Appleton) have performed together in the United States and abroad since 1994. Their first CD featuring works by American women composers Joan Tower, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, and Amy Beach was just released in the fall of 2008 by White Pine Music.

Both concerts are free and open to the public. For more information call 920.839.2216.
