Menghan Cao plays Beethoven's Piano Sonata in C, Op. 2, #3. Menghan is one of five Interlochen students travelling to Detroit to perform at the invitation of Maestro Leonard Slatkin of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Interlochen students Dylan Naroff (violin), Ariela Bohrod (piano), and Dan Blumhard (cello), are determined to take part in this year's Fischoff Chamber Music competition. With that in mind, they formed the Mazel Trio and have begun preparing their repertoire. Interlochen cello instructor and Chamber Music Coach Crispin Campbell brought them by Studio A to play for us, and they brought out the big guns - the final movement of Shostakovich's Trio #2 in E minor.
AA Students Aden Beery (tuba), Elmer Churampi (trumpet), Morgan Low (trumpet), Alex Melzer (trombone) and Markus Osterlund (horn) are members of an IAA Brass Quintet preparing for the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.
Click to listen as they visit with Kate Botello in Studio A to play a colorful collection of brass music in different styles. You'll hear two movements of a famous "Quintet" from Malcolm Arnold, Samuel Scheidt's Renaissance piece, "Canzona Bergamasca," and the kicky and fun "Killer Tango" by Sonny Kompanek.
