Violinist Sarah Geller
Program: "Florestan and Eusebius" Robert Schumann - Sonata in a minor/Clara Schumann - Drei Romanzen, Op.22/Karol Szymanowski - Notturno e Tarantella, Op.28/C├ęsar Franck - Sonata in A major ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Violinist SARAH E GELLER made her Carnegie Hall solo recital debut in June 2002 as an Artists' International Special Presentation Winner. In May 2004 she was invited to Lincoln Center's Merkin Concert Hall for another solo recital presented by Artists' International Alumni Winners' Series. Sarah won her first competition at the age of ten, giving her the opportunity to perform with flutist Carol Wincenc and harpist Nancy Allen. She went on to perform as an orchestral and chamber musician in numerous Summer Festivals in the US and abroad holding several concertmaster positions and received coaching with renowned artists such as the St. Petersburg Quartet. Upon completion of her Bachelor of Music degree at the Manhattan School of Music, Sarah received the Helen Airoff Dowling Award for "outstanding undergraduate violinist". Since then, she has appeared as a recitalist and chamber musician at Donnell Library Center, Steinway Hall, Christ and St. Stephen's Church, Manhattan School of Music, Ulrich Recital Hall at the University of Maryland and the University of Maine at Farmington. As a soloist, Geller has performed with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra (NJ), Baroque Aria Ensemble (NYC), University of Southern Maine Chamber Orchestra and the University of Maine at Farmington Orchestra. Last season, Sarah appeared as soloist in the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra and with the Maine Chamber Ensemble and in the Beethoven Triple Concerto with the Adelphi Chamber Orchestra. As recitalist, she performed in programs entitled "The Great French Violin Sonatas" at the Donnell Library Center, and "Dances, Tales, and Reflections" at the Chappaqua Library Auditorium. Next year's highlights include return engagements at the Chappaqua and Donnell Libraries and a chamber music recital as part of the Ocean City Summer Festival. Sarah will also perform in the prestigious "An Die Musik Live!" Series in Baltimore and "Buckingham's Choice" in Frederick, Maryland and in her native Maine at the Arts Institute of Western Maine's, Nordica Auditorium. As well as maintaining a busy freelancing schedule, Sarah is the director of the PS 116 School for Strings Outreach Violin and Cello Program. Former teachers have included Michael Gilbert, Patinka Kopec, Sylvia Rosenberg, Gregory Fulkerson, and Lawrence Golan. She is currently studying with Joey Corpus. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "She (Geller) plays Mendelssohn's difficult cadenzas fluently and with the brightness they require, while reserving a full, lush tone for the flowing melodies." - Portland Press Herald (Maine) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "The Faure...was the highlight of the concert: Ms. Geller and her excellent pianist, reveled in its sunny, carefree high spirits. She has the simple, poised, confident stage presence of a seasoned performer..." - New York Concert Review ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Never have I seen a performer have more enthusiastic listeners." - The Morning Call (PA)
