The Gryphon Trio Performs at OHM BOCES
The Gryphon Trio performed at the Oneida-Herkimer-Madison (OHM) BOCES on Monday, October 22 at 9 a.m. in The Howard D. Mettelman Learning Center.
The concert was a private performance for P-TECH OHM (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) and Middle Settlement Academy students and staff through the support of the John Winter Family Fund.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the trio of violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist James Parker have impressed international audiences with its highly refined, dynamic performances and established the group as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios. With a repertoire that ranges from the traditional to the contemporary and from European classicism to modern-day multimedia, the Gryphons are committed to redefining chamber music for the 21st century. The Trio tours regularly throughout North America and Europe, have commissioned over 75 new works and frequently collaborate on projects that push the boundaries of chamber music.
The concert was sponsored by The Chamber Music Society of Utica, one of the oldest chamber music presenting organizations in the country, dedicated to bringing world class artists to central New York.
“This is a great opportunity to expose our students to a style of music they may have never heard before,” said Jamie Sitera, principal of Academic and Related Services at the OHM BOCES. “We’re so thankful for this opportunity The Chamber Music Society of Utica has given our students to engage with music in a real way and learn about the diversity of artistic expression.”
The Gryphon Trio will also hold a public performance, sponsored by The Chamber Music Society of Utica on Tuesday, October 21 at 2:30 p.m. at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
