Piano, cello and violin bring classical masterworks to Pulaski Nov. 19
The final LaVeck Concert of 2016 brings the work of classical masters Mozart, Schubert, and Debussy to Pulaski through the artistry of pianist Robert Auler, violinist David Fulmer and cellist Jay Campbell at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19.
The concert is part of Pulaski’s Rhea LaVeck Memorial Concert Series, which brings world-class classical music to northern Oswego County. LaVeck Concerts are held at the Pulaski Congregational Church, 27 Lake St., Pulaski.
Auler, professor of piano at SUNY Oswego’s school of music, recently won the college’s 2016 President’s Award for Scholarly and Creative Activity.
He has performed worldwide, at such famous venues as Carnegie Hall, Teatro Colon, and Shanghai Symphony Hall. Locally, he performs with Syracuse Symphoria and Oswego’s Lake Effect Trio.
Violinist David Fulmer returns to LaVeck by popular demand after the huge success of his June 2015 performance.
A Juilliard School graduate who has been featured in the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center, Fulmer enjoyed the great reception he received in Pulaski so much that he agreed to return this year.
Cellist Jay Campbell is an international competition winner and winner of the Avery Fischer Career Grant Award.
His performances have been called “electrifying” by the New York Times, “gentle, poignant, and deeply moving” by the Washington Post.
The program for the Nov. 19 concert includes Mozart’s Sonata in B-flat Major, Claude Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano, and Franz Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-flat Major
Auler founded LaVeck Concerts in 2008 in memory of Pulaski musician and educator Rhea LaVeck.
The series holds six concerts a year with support from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation, CNY Arts, the Pulaski Community Endowment Fund, and individual donations.
A $10 suggested donation at the door helps the series continue, but no admission is required and students are encouraged to attend for free.
A meet-the-artists reception with free refreshments will be held after the concert.
