Mozart and Mendelssohn for Middle School Students

Mozart and Mendelssohn for Middle School Students thumbnail143816
Port Jefferson Middle School music students had a musical treat when members of the Three Village Chamber Players visited the school recently. The guest musicians – pianist Xin Ben Yu, violinist Emre Engin and cellist Alison Rowe – played movements from Mozart’s Piano Trio in C Major, K.548 and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 66. The trio took the time to share their talents with the students as they were performing locally in free concerts. In addition to their classical performance, they conducted a masterclass with each ensemble in the school. The visit was another opportunity for Port Jefferson students to experience creative participation in musical and fine arts experiences.
