The two will lead a piano and cello workshop Saturday, — June 5, at 10:30 a.m., $5 students and teachers $10 general public.

The informal workshop involves the nature, preparation, — and practice of chamber music ensemble work, especially that of an experienced — cellist and pianist.

The two artists will explore the process of coming together — to form a collaborative interpretation of great chamber works, including — music heard in the previous night's concert, but also unrehearsed repertoire — so that the experience can be observed as fresh and spontaneous.

Some of the workshop will be devoted to working with student — or community chamber performers in a master class situation. Dialogue — with the participants and audience will be encouraged.
