AIV’s 2024–2025 Season

 

 

October 6
Providence Mandolin Orchestra

The original Providence Mandolin Orchestra was founded in 1911 by William Place Jr., one of the leading performers of the mandolin’s “Golden Age” in early twentieth-century America. The modern PMO dates from the early 1970s, when it was revived by Hibbard Perry, a former student of Place. Since then, the PMO has become the leading American mandolin ensemble, with regular performances throughout the eastern United States and multiple tours to Europe. Mark Davis has served as the PMO’s music director since 1989.

November 10
Ko-Eun Yi (solo pianist)

Ko-Eun Yi, from Seoul, South Korea, holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Juilliard School and earned a Doctor of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University. Her performances span globally, collaborating with orchestras like the Boston Symphony, Barcelona Symphony, and Jerusalem Symphony. Her accolades include top prizes from prestigious competitions, and she has graced renowned venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Chicago Cultural Center, and Phillips Gallery in Washington, D.C.

February 23
Champlain Trio (violin, cello, piano)

It has been said that out of adversity comes opportunity, and out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Champlain Trio was formed. Violinist Letitia Quante, cellist Emily Taubl, and pianist Hiromi Fukuda each call Vermont home, and the spring of 2020 brought the unique opportunity to come together as an ensemble. All three musicians earned degrees from the Juilliard School among others and hold positions in the Vermont and Springfield Symphonies, Amherst College, the University of Vermont, and Middlebury College.

March 23
Sheffield Chamber Players
(string quartet)

Sheffield Chamber Players was founded in 2014 on the belief that chamber music is a powerful tool for connection and community. By performing diverse repertoire in intimate settings, the players change the way listeners gather, respond to the music, and connect through a shared artistic experience. In 2023, the group, comprised of Sasha Callahan and Megumi Stohs-Lewis (violins), Alexander Vavilov (viola), and Leo Eguchi (cello), received the Harvard Musical Association’s George Henschel Community Award.

April 27
