For the 11th consecutive year, MMI Preparatory School will host the Grammy-nominated Wister Quartet for a public performance at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the school. The performance is made possible through the support of Dr. James W. Feussner ’65.
The Wister Quartet is to perform with Allen Krantz, a critically acclaimed guitarist, composer and chamber musician. The concert, which is free and open to the public, is to be held in the Athletics and Drama Complex on the MMI campus in Freeland. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Members of the quartet are violinists Nancy Bean and Davyd Booth, violist Pamela Fay and cellist Lloyd Smith.
This year’s program is entitled “Young Composers” and features music from Frederick Delius, Friedrich Burgmüller, Johann Sebastian Bach, Sergei Rachmaninov and Franz Schubert, all of whom were young when their compositions were written. The program also includes three pieces developed by MMI students and arranged by Lloyd Smith.
The quartet will also perform for MMI students during an afternoon assembly at the school the same day.
