WARRENTON — The Cherry Hill Historical Foundation will hold its first full concert in more than a year on Sunday, May 9.
The Mothers Day event will begin at 3 p.m. and will feature pianist Jonathan Levin performing Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 27, No. 2 “Moonlight”; Moldobasonov’s “Mother’s Field” ballet; and Edvard Grieg’s Sonata in E Minor, op. 7.
Jonathan Levin has established himself as a compelling pianist, composer, concert producer, and music entrepreneur. He is artistic director and founder of the Clayton Piano Festival, now in its 10th season of concerts. He presented a special performance of Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” at the Kremlin Palace in Moscow, and has made solo appearances in major venues across the United States, including Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. He has been a laureate of many competitions and prizes, including the National Stillman-Kelley Award, second prize at the 2012 Los Angeles International Liszt Competition, and the Alan Walker Award from the American Liszt Society.
Levin has performed several times at Cherry Hill, and the directors are pleased to feature him as the guest artist for the Emily Meymandi Concert, established by Dr. Assad Meymandi in honor of his late wife.
