Join the Quick for a special celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020! Pianist and Fairfield Emeritus Professor Orin Grossman will be accompanied by cellist Michael Haber, former member of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Cleveland Orchestra, violinist Sheryl Staples, the Principal Associate Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic, and singer/performer Emma Sohlberg.

Together the musicians will celebrate Beethoven’s creative genius with performances of his chamber music for Piano, Violin and Cello, including perhaps the greatest of Piano Trios, The Archduke.

The program will include:
Piano Trio Opus 1 #1
Irish and Scottish Songs
Piano Trio Opus 97 (Archduke)

Orin Grossman has been delighting audiences at the Quick, and the world over, with his unique and engaging approach to performing and explaining great American and European music. Dr. Grossman joined the Fairfield University faculty in 1975. He has served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and as an Academic Vice President. He is presently Emeritus Professor of Visual and Performing Arts.

Michael Haber, a student of Janos Starker and Gregor Piatigorsky, is a former member of The Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell, the Casals Festival Orchestra under Pablo Casals, and was the principal cellist of The Colorado Music Festival Orchestra.

Described by The Los Angeles Times as having a “tantalizing mix of qualities... refinement and boldness, polish and fire...big, rich, sweeping tone, lacking nothing in warmth and evenness,” Sheryl Staples is the Principal Associate Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic and serves on the violin faculty at the Manhattan School of Music and Juilliard Pre-College Division.

Emma Sohlberg is a New York City based singer and musical theatre performer. She has a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Michigan and performs in concerts, cabarets, plays and voice over.
