The 25th season will close at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, with the Laredo-Robinson Duo and special guest pianist Chih-Yi Chen in a program of Beethoven, Ravel and Franck.
The storybook romance of the Bolivian-born violinist Jaime Laredo and American cellist Sharon Robinson has, over the past 35 years, been expressed in many facets of their lives. In 2012, the husband-wife team joined the instrumental and chamber music faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music. They have taught at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University since 2005.
The Laredo-Robinson Duo gave its first performance at The Honest Brook Music Festival in 2006. This season marks the duo’s third appearance at the festival.
Internationally active as a soloist, collaborative pianist, and chamber musician, Chen specializes in collaborative repertoire for piano and strings, and in coaching string players. She has performed in concerts throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and Taiwan and was a soloist with Taipei Symphony Orchestra under conductor Irwin Hoffman.
Honest Brook Music Festival concerts are presented in a preserved dairy barn in the former dairy capital of New York state. The festival is held on Honest Brook Road, off Route 28 north of Delhi.
Season subscriptions are available for $85, single tickets are $25 and students are admitted free.
