This is a very special event to benefit young people whose lives are transformed through music education. All funds received from ticket sales go to 240 Strings. Cash bar (wine and beer) and a simple menu (pizza, cheese/fruit plate) will be available.
The mission of 240 Strings is to provide free classical music education, cultivating young minds and hearts while building community along the way. Please visit the 240 Strings website, www.240strings.org, it is inspirational!
The Portland Piano Trio is the resident ensemble of 240 Strings, which builds community among Portland, Maine, youth through subsidized music lessons and affordable chamber music concerts. The trio was chosen for a week-long residency in both 2017 and 2018 at the prestigious Avaloch Farm Institute in New Hampshire. They have been recognized as among the city’s must-hear groups by critic Allan Kozinn and has played public performances and house concerts throughout Maine and New England, including Portland, Portsmouth, Camden, Freeport, and Peaks Island. Musicians Tracey Jasas-Hardel (violin), Wayne Smith (cello), and Anastasia Antonacos (piano) are committed to bringing energy, understanding, technique, insight, great beauty, humor, impressive ensemble, and shared musical values to the music they play. Their varied programs feature traditional repertoire alongside newer works.
Cadenza is the perfect setting for this very special event!
