"Russian Reflections" with the Illinois Arts Trio
Sunday, March 22, 4 PM
Music specifically composed for piano, violin and cello ensembles will come alive in a performance by violinist Aaron Jacobs from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Russian pianist Tatiana Shustova, and cellist Amy Catron from Millikin University. The Trio will perform renowned mid-20th century works by Russian composers Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Shostakovich.

Ms. Catron is a versatile cellist appearing as a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician; her credits include being principal cellist with several Ohio Symphonies, and performing as soloist with a variety of orchestras in Illinois and Florida.
The concert will take place the afternoon of Sunday, March 22nd at 4PM at the Middleburg United Methodist church, 15 W Washington St., Middleburg, VA. A “meet the artists” reception will follow the performance.
