Featuring Josh Baiad, Piano; Oliver Martinez, Piano and Vocals; Brooke Morris, Vocals; Jennifer Poole, Flute; and Brianna Walker, French Horn. These talented students will be performing in concert in The Silo Gallery as part of their participation in Hunt Hill Farm Trust’s New Talent Music Initiative. This program for high-school music students provides mentorship in professional practices for both vocal and instrumental performance. The New Talent Music Initiative is an outgrowth of Hunt Hill Farm’s 2011 Steinway Music Program, which featured young artists in concert. Nine area students are participating in the program. They are working with Silo Gallery Director Valerie Culbertson and Hunt Hill Farm Executive Director Liba Furhman. In addition, a music advisory board comprised of musicians and educators from throughout the area, and from New York and Massachusetts provides feedback and mentorship. A highlight of the program for the students includes an April trip to Carnegie Hall for a New York Pops concert rehearsal and an opportunity to meet with some of the orchestra’s musicians. The New Music Talent Initiative is made possible through the generous support of The Connecticut Community Foundation, The Portell Foundation, The Leir Charitable Foundation, Union Savings Bank Foundation and The Ellen Knowles Harcourt Foundation. Tickets: $10 in advance, $15 at the door, Students $5.
