The John Bapst Chamber Ensemble and guests will be honored with a very special visit by the world renowned Morgenstern Trio on Monday, May 2, one day after performing at Orono’s Collins Center for the Arts. The visit is sponsored by the Collins Center for the Arts outreach program and Bapst is the only area school so honored.
The Morgenstern Trio, Catherine Klipfel, piano, Stefan Hempel, violin, and Emanuel Wehse, cellist, met during their studies at the Folkwang Conservatory in Essen, Germany. After only two years together, they have been awarded numerous prizes and awards and have performed around the world, including the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.
Following a brief performance for the Bapst Trio, our guests will critique a performance by our own musicians before moving to the band room for a question and answer session. The Bapst Trio will once again perform, following guidance offered by Klipfel, Hempel, and Wehse. The visit promises to be an exciting and informative time for all and we thank the Morgenstern Trio for sharing their exceptional talents with us.
