Trinity Choir

Fingers and Cords will showcase the incredible fingering expression of two world-renowned artists, Shirley Yoo and Stephen Buck. Yoo and Buck will delight the audience with two-piano compositions that bring the romance of Brahms to light.

The world of four-hand and two-piano music offers many gems by the greatest of composers, including Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, and contemporary giants like Bartok, George Crumb, and Lucian Berio.  Unfortunately, many of these works aren’t performed very often, for the simple reason that it can be difficult to find a room with two pianos in it, not to mention putting two pianos on a stage together. 

After a short wine reception at intermission, the second half of the program will feature San Antonio’s own renowned Trinity University Choir. Director Gary Seighman takes the levels of the vocal cord to incredible heights.  An original concert that is not to be missed.
