Montana State University piano professor Julie Gosswiller will join cellist Michael Reynolds and violinist Angella Ahn for “Montana Made: A Celebration of Musicians that Give Back” at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 23, in Reynolds Recital Hall on the MSU campus.
The free concert, followed by the Dessert for the Spirit reception, is one of the events of the 2104 Montana State University President’s Fine Arts Series. Gosswiller is substituting for keyboardist Phil Aaberg, who is unable to perform due to illness.
A student from Arts without Boundaries, a foundation that Aaberg and his wife, Patty, founded, as well as a student from Classics for Kids, a foundation that Reynolds founded, will also perform. Both foundations make possible music lessons and instruments for children.
Reynolds is a Bozeman native and founding member of the Muir String Quartet, an internationally known group. He is also professor of cello at Boston University. Reynolds’ father, Creech Reynolds, was a former chair of the MSU Department of Music and the namesake of the Reynolds Recital Hall.
Ahn, professor of violin at MSU, is the violinist for the Ahn Trio, a trio that has performed in the White House, New York's Lincoln Center, Vienna's Musikverein, Leipzig’'s Gewandhaus, Argentina’s Teatro Colon and the Beijing Concert Hall, among other venues.
Gosswiller, a recipient of a 2012 MSU Award for Excellence in Teaching, performs with soprano Elizabeth Croy, MSU professor of voice. They have been finalists and semifinalists in the Brahms International Competition, Savannah Music Festival, and won many awards in the Cyber Sing competition.
Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, across the street from the MSU Duck Pond.
