Three artists playing in ensemble and solo
The Silverwood Trio includes three area musicians: Michelle Barraclough, flute; Garden Spot graduate, Kirstin Myers, oboe and Brenda Johnson, cello. All three members of The Silverwood Trio are graduates of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. They met, and were friends while on campus, but certainly unaware that their life paths would lead them to performing together in the upcoming years. Inspired by subbing for another group who performed weddings with similar instrumentation, Brenda was interested in forming another ensemble that would lend itself well to wedding and recital performances. While she and Michelle had kept in close contact over the years, they were in need of an oboist. Kirstin moved back into the Eastern Pa. area in 1999 and was re-connected to Brenda through their association with the York Symphony Orchestra. Hence, The Silverwood Trio was created in 2001.
In the past 13 years, this distinct trio has performed at numerous locations in the York, Lancaster, and Harrisburg areas. Their varied and extensive repertoire gives them great flexibility to perform for any occasion. While they are mostly known as a group that performs “classical” music, they also perform popular, sacred, and Irish selections.
St. Peter’s is located at 10 Delp Road, Lancaster. The program will include works for the trio and also solo selections by each of the musicians. Composers represented include Haydn, Mozart, Handel and Bach, as well as popular standards and Irish tunes – a very eclectic evening of music. The program is open to the public at no cost; a free will donation will be received at intermission. Interested concert goers are encouraged to contact the church office at 569-9211 during the day to get further information.
