Acclaimed pianist Sarah Cahill and virtuoso violinist Kate Stenberg in concert together.
Interfaith Welcome Refugee Center and Zion Lutheran Church invite you to hear works by Kaija Saariaho, Gabriela Lena Frank, Henry Cowell, and others in a benefit for The Dirty Girls of Lesvos, a humanitarian and environmental organization helping refugees in Greece.
The New York Times recently called writer, producer, and pianist Sarah Cahill “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde.” New Music Box describes violinist Kate Stenberg as ”highly virtuosic and deeply communicative . . . Full of character and presence.” The opportunity to see these two sterling performers together is not to be missed. Watch Kate Stenberg perform with Sarah Cahill: https://tinyurl.com/yd8f7e9v
