Triform Camphill Community Hosts 11h Annual Benefit Student Bell Choir Concert
Featuring Flutist, Paula Robison and Guitarist, Frederic Hand
Sunday, May 5, 2013 ~ 2pm
At Triform Camphill Community Phoenix Center
Hudson, NY, — April 2, 2013 —Triform Camphill Community, a residential and therapeutic community for individuals with developmental disabilities located in Hudson, NY, will host its 11th Annual Benefit Student Bell Choir Concert on Sunday, May 5,2013, at 2:00 pm at the Triform Phoenix Center located at 20 Triform Road, Hudson, NY. The program features world acclaimed flutist, Paula Robison, and Grammy-nominated and Emmy-winning television composer and recording artist Guitarist, Fredric Hand. Robison and Hand will be performing “Amazing Grace” which includes Italian love songs, songs of the spirit and “Amazing Grace” with the Triform Bell Choir. New York Soprano, Adele Wilson, will also make a special appearance singing two arias. Proceeds from this event will provide Triform student scholarships to deserving young adults with developmental disabilities.
Paula Robison burst onto the international music scene in 1966 when she won First Prize at the Geneva Competition, the first American ever to receive this honor. She joined the roster of the newly formed Young Concert Artists and embarked on a groundbreaking, world-traveling career as a flute soloist, a career which continues to be vibrant to this day. Frederic Hand is noted for his unique performances of early music, and is the creator and director of Jazzantiqua, a group The New York Times has described as “scintillating and brilliant.” The Triform Student Bell Choir will perform under the direction of Triform music director, Akiko Suesada.
The musical performances will be followed by a reception with the performers where Triform student art, hand made items and crafts will be available for purchase. “Raising money for financial aid is an important aspect of our fundraising work,” says Anne Bailey, a Triform Trustee and this year’s concert event chair. “We are thrilled that Paula and Frederic will be our featured performers this year,” says Bailey. “They will make this event truly memorable.”
Concert tickets are $75.00 per person and can be purchased by calling the Development office at Triform, 518-851-9320 x 11 or email Allison@triform.org.
