Music School paints to a different tune for concert

MILFORD — The Music School of Delaware’s Milford Branch presents its first Music Masters series concert, entitled The Colors of Music, Tuesday, Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m. at Avenue United Methodist Church, 20 N. Church St., Milford.

The program includes works by J.S. Bach, Gaubert and Prokofiev as well as music for string duo and trios. Featured performers include the Mosaic String Duo; the Pegasus Trio; Dr. Donna Beech, piano; Matthew Genders, cello; Liliya Maslov, piano and Kate Ransom, violin.

Milford Branch Director Kate Inie-Richards looks forward to this first concert of the season. “I’m excited to kick off our Music Masters series here in Milford,” she commented. “It’s inspiring to see our talented faculty collaborate with one another, and these performances are wonderful opportunities for our community to come together and share their love of the arts.”

The concert sees a return performance by Pegasus Trio (Melinda Bowman, flute; Jeanmarie Braddock, violin and Christopher Braddock, guitar), “…who are always a crowd pleaser in Milford,” Ms. Inie-Richards observes.

Pegasus Trio will play an original piece called “Ipso Facto.”  Trio founding member, Christopher Braddock, talks about the piece, which he penned: “I’m particularly excited about the third movement, which I wrote several years ago. I’ve tried it with a few different ensembles but this arrangement is the first time it has sounded right!”

Braddock is also part of Mosaic String Duo with guitarist Douglas Seth. The duo will play three original pieces, two of which feature their favorite new musical combo – nylon.
