String trio performs at Berger Center


Oakmont Berger Center

Thursday May 14th 2015 - 1:30pm to

Beautiful works by some of the greatest composers are seldom heard in live performance simply because of the unusual combination of instruments involved. There are many excellent string quartets performing today, but almost no string duos or string trios. On May 14, at 1:30 p.m. in the Berger Center in Oakmont, Music at Oakmont’s season finale features the superb artists Livia Sohn, violin; Sharon Wei, viola; and Michelle Djokic, cello. They will perform Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola K. 423, Daron Hagen’s Duo for Violin and Cello, and Beethoven’s String Trio Op. 9 No. 1.

Sohn was first-prize winner, at age 13, of the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition. She has soloed with symphonies including Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Seattle, Milwaukee, Aspen Festival, and Boston Pops, as well as many international ensembles.

Wei has appeared as soloist with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, and as Guest Principal Violist with the Cincinnati Symphony and Canadian Opera Company.

Djokic, a member of the lauded New Century Chamber Orchestra, is founder and director of the Concordia Chamber Players. An active chamber musician as well as soloist, Djokic has collaborated with such artists as Emanuel Ax, Menahem Pressler, and Lynn Harrell.
