Seamen’s Church Institute is very pleased to present a special concert by Agustin & Carol Anievas on Sunday, March 11, 2012 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at St. George’s School Chapel in Middletown. The concert will benefit the creation of an endowment for the preservation and maintenance of the Chapel of the Sea at Seamen’s.
The program will include works by Bach-Busoni, Chopin and the Rachmaninoff Concerto No.2 in C Minor for two pianos, featuring Carol Anievas at the second piano.
Our Guest Performers:
Agustin Anievas began his studies with his mother before his fourth birthday. By the time he was twelve, he had already performed at the Pan American Union in Washington, D.C. and the Palacio de Bellas Artes where he was the youngest artist to be given that honor. His orchestral debut at eighteen with the Little Orchestra Society in New York’s Carnegie Hall began an already auspicious career, and he went on to garner many prizes and competitions as a young artist. Performing in the musical centers of the US, as well as on most of the continents and in many countries, Agustin has appeared in recitals and with orchestras worldwide. Now retired from his position as Professor of Piano at Brooklyn College’s Conservatory of Music, Mr. Anievas has been a long time Newport Festival artist. He first appeared at the invitation of the indomitable Mark P. Malkovich Sr. in the 1970′s and will appear again this summer playing works by Beethoven, Brahms, and Chopin. This afternoon’s program has the delightful addition of his wife, Carol, who will accompany him at the second piano playing the orchestral part of the Rachmaninoff Concert No.2.
Seamen’s Church Institute very much appreciates the warm hospitality of St. George’s School for allowing us to host this afternoon concert in the magnificant Chapel on their campus in Middletown.
