The concert will feature pianist Sahun Hong (in a photo below top), winner of the 2012 Milwaukee Piano Arts Competition, and cellist Alison Rowe (below bottom), a winner of the 2013 Wisconsin Public Radio Neale-Silva Competition.

The duo will be performing works of Benjamin Britten, Beethoven, Kirchner and Robert Schumann.

The concert is open to the public, tickets are free for all and no reservations are required. A pre-concert conversation with the artists will begin at 6:45 p.m.

In addition to hearing the musical performances, the audience will be introduced to the 18 events of the 2013 Concert Season by Festival Director Jeffrey Harkins.  (At bottom, in a YouTube video, is a movement from a Haydn piano trio performed at the festival’s chamber music camp.)

For more information, contact the Festival Office at (800) 662-7097 or visit www.greenlakefestival.org.

ALSO WORTH NOTING: This Sunday afternoon, June 16, from 12:30 to 2 p.m., Wisconsin Public Radio host Anders Yocom will be featuring music on her show that will be performed during the 34th Festival Season. You can tune in to your favorite Wisconsin Public Radio station — or stream it online here — to listen to Lori’s Broadcast previewing some of the musical highlights you will hear live in concert halls this year.
