Blair Presents: Cornelia Heard and Friends

Saturday, November 1
8 p.m., Steve & Judy Turner Recital Hall

Cornelia Heard, Blair School of Music faculty member since 1982, was one of the first students to enroll at the Blair Academy of Music in the fall of 1964. To celebrate her milestone affiliation with the Blair School, Heard will be joined for this program by current and former colleagues, friends and family in works by Bach, Telemann and Brahms.

The program will include a “family ensemble” performance of Bach’s Sonata in A Major, with Heard’s son, violinist George Meyer, and husband, bassist Edgar Meyer. For Telemann’s Concerto for Four Violins in D Major, she’ll be joined by with current and former violin colleagues Carolyn Huebl, Stephen Miahky and Christian Teal. On Brahms’s passionate and imaginative G Minor Piano Quartet, Heard performs with former Blair String Quartet colleagues Kathryn Plummer, viola, and Grace Mihi Bahng, cello, as well as pianist Amy Dorfman. A delightful evening in celebration of Blair’s legacy as well as its future!

Presented with gratitude to the Valere Blair Potter Trust for its generous support of the Blair School.
