Syracuse OASIS Concerts and Events Calendar
OASIS in CONCERT - Summer 2014: Fourteenth Season
Andrew C. Russo, Concert Series Coordinator
OASIS welcomes the end of winter with three uplifting concerts on Tuesdays at 11:00 AM featuring a wide variety of music. In May, Syracuse’s soprano extraordinaire Janet Brown will treat us to a program of arias and art songs with pianist Fred Karpoff. June features Wind and Wire, a traditional Irish music ensemble led by fiddler Jonathan Chai. And in July, a rare treat with a fantastic trio led by Sar-Shalom Strong performing classic works by Mozart, Schumann and Debussy. Please join us in the Lecture Hall for these three highly different concerts, full of beautiful musical colors.
WIND AND WIRE – June 17
A little taste of St. Patrick’s Day in June! Come and enjoy fiddler Jonathan Chai, Uilleann piper Nick Whitmer and special guest David Deacon on banjo, fiddle and guitar in a program of traditional Irish music.
SAR-SHALOM STRONG, piano; ARVILLA ROVIT, viola; ALLAN KOLSKY, clarinet – July 15
This outstanding trio of musicians will perform rarely heard classical works of unusual beauty. Mozart’s Kegelstatt Trio, Schumann’s Maerchenbilder and Debussy’s Rhapsodie for clarinet and piano. A unique combination of alto instruments that will be a treat for the ears.
