The Carthage Music Department presents The Brahms Project, Carthage Faculty Trio at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 17 in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.
Commemorating the 120th anniversary of Johannes Brahms’ death, the Brahms Project continues into the 2017-2018 season. Professor Wael Farouk and the Faculty Trio will present the entirety of Brahms’s collection of chamber music, featuring sonatas for piano, cello, and violin. The Brahms Project recognizes the brilliance and ingenuity of Brahms’s works, and hopes to share some of the most popular music of the late nineteenth century with students and members of the community alike.
The Carthage Faculty Trio features highly skilled musicians and teachers. Prof. Farouk previously taught at Cairo Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, and the Chicago School of the Arts at Roosevelt University. He has also performed as a soloist for the North Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the Manhattan Symphony, the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, and more. Professor Allegra Montanari is a member of the Sarasota Opera Orchestra. She also founded Sharing Notes, a nonprofit group that creates opportunities for young musicians to perform in hospitals. Professor Andrew Williams is a member of the Fifth House Ensemble, and has given stunning solo violin performances of works such as David Rakowski’s “When the Bow Breaks.” In addition to teaching at Carthage, Williams teaches at the renowned Merit School of Music.
