Rawlins Piano Trio in concert at The U on Sunday Sept 28
Compositions selected for Sunday’s concert include piano trios from two of the world’s most famous composers: Leonard Bernstein and Peter I. Tchaikovsky. Bernstein’s "Piano Trio" is an early work composed while Bernstein was still a teenager studying at Harvard University while Tchaikovsky’s "Trio" was inspired by the death of Nikolay Rubenstein in 1881. In addition to performing on the USD campus Sept. 28., the Rawlins Piano Trio will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 26 at the First Congregational Church in Sioux Falls, S.D. Both concerts offer free admission to the public.
Named in honor of Marjorie Rawlins and the late Robert Rawlins, principal benefactors of the Trio and graduates of USD, the Rawlins Piano Trio was founded in 1987. Active as teachers as well as performers, the Rawlins Piano Trio is comprised of violinist John Thomson, D.M.A., an associate professor of music; cellist Marie-Elaine Gagnon, D.M.A., assistant professor of music; and pianist Susan Keith Gray, D.M.A., associate professor of music; the trio has formed a reputation as a preeminent interpreter of 19th and early 20th century American music. Additionally, the trio performs regularly throughout the United States and abroad, including prestigious concert series, television and radio broadcasts, appearances at conferences and educational outreach to young audiences.
