Project STEP Benefit Concert Featuring Triple Helix Piano Trio
Sun, April 2, 2017, 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
Join the talented students of Project STEP and the award-winning musicians from Triple Helix Piano Trio for an extraordinary concert. This moving performance is in memory of the life and legacy of Judith Sandler, a long-time friend of Triple Helix. All proceeds from the concert will be put towards the Judith Sandler Fund, a scholarship initiated by Triple Helix for the students of Project STEP.
Triple Helix Piano Trio: When the award-winning and internationally known Triple Helix musicians—violinist Bayla Keyes, cellist Rhonda Rider, and pianist Lois Shapiro—joined together in 1995, The Boston Globe described the results of their union as “the livest live music in town,” with “wildly imaginative, emotionally charged, virtuoso playing” that was “sophisticated in musical detail, wholeheartedly interactive, uninhibited in emotion, and touched by a special grace.”
Subsequently, the ensemble has become known as one of the best piano trios on today’s musical landscape. As the Los Angeles Times noted, “Triple Helix is clearly something special…the players have a splendid musical chemistry with virtually perfect dynamic balance, a firm collective sense of rhythm, and fervor and authority when needed.”
Project STEP: Project STEP (String Training Education Program) recognizes that certain racial and ethnic minorities are vastly underrepresented in classical music. Our mission is to address this imbalance by identifying musically talented children from underrepresented Boston communities and providing them with comprehensive music and string instrument instruction. We set the highest standards for our students, provide mentoring and performance opportunities, and create a network of support for our students, their families, and their communities.
Parish of All Saints, Ashmont: All Saints is located in the south Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, just off Peabody Square, at 209 Ashmont St. and is a very short walk from the Ashmont T station on the Red Line.
