The concert will be presented on Sunday, April 13, at 2:00 p.m. The Damocles Trio will perform a program of Haydn, Turina and Brahms featuring Adam Kent at the piano, Airi Yoshoika on violin and Sibylle Johner on cello.
The Damocles Trio was founded in 1996 by pianist Adam Kent, violinist Airi Yoshioka, and cellist Sibylle Johner, who met in the doctoral program at The Julliard School. The trio has performed throughout the USA, appearing numerous times at Alice Tully Hall and Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, and completed several highly successful international tours. The trio presented a special memorial program for the fifth anniversary of 9/11 at Trinity Church in New York City and has been frequently featured on Robert Sherman's “Young Artists Showcase” on WQXR radio.
The concert honors the memory of Clarice Wilson, Music Specialist at the Library from 1974-1999 who supported gifted, young musicians at the start of their performance careers. The concert is made possible through donations to the Clarice Wilson Memorial Fund of the White Plains Library Foundation. The Fund is used to enhance the Library's music programming and collections.
