FSU Presents the West Shore Piano Trio
Frostburg State University’s Department of Music will present the West Shore Piano Trio as part of its Faculty-Guest Artist Series on Friday, April 12, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The trio includes Jay DeWire, piano; Diana Flesner, cello; and Heather Haughn, violin. The performance is free and open to the public.
Since their first performance on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in 2008, the WSPT has brought passion, color and penetrating insight to the works they perform, not only through their playing but also through their commentary and interaction with audiences.
The WSPT believes that education and live performance enhance each other, and that the better informed an audience is about a work, the more deeply they will appreciate its performance. To this end, the members of the trio accompany each concert with brief verbal commentary, providing biographical details about the composer, framing the work in the context of its time, and highlighting thematic and compositional elements of the piece, as well as connections shared between each work on the program. Recent performances include concerts at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, An die Musik, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Goucher College, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Harmony Hall and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.
