MENDELSSOHN PIANO TRIO and CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA YOUTH BALLET

“War and Peace II”

Feb. 16, 2020 at 4 p.m., Parmer Hall

Sponsored by the School of the Arts Performing Arts Series and the Center for Public Humanities

This second concert focusing on “War and Peace” commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II by examining the deep cultural shift that happens as a result of war. The Mendelssohn Piano Trio in collaboration with the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB) will present the deeply romantic Arensky Piano Trio choreographed by Alan Hineline, followed by the searingly dramatic Shostakovich Piano Quintet, vividly illustrating the changes in human experience brought on by materialism and violence in the 20th century. The Mendelssohn Piano Trio will be joined by Blanka Bednarz, violin professor at Dickinson College; Michael Stepniak, violist and Dean of Shenandoah Conservatory; and dancers from CPYB.

Ticket prices are $20 for adults; $5 for Messiah College students (with ID) and youth (18 and under). To purchase, please contact the Messiah College Ticket Office at 717-691-6036 or online at messiah.edu/tickets.
