Free Music for Youth concert features piano duo

Free Music for Youth Young Persons’ Concert Finale will feature the Primakov/Lavrova piano duo on Saturday, March 10, at 2 p.m., at the Pequot Library. Doors open at 1:45 p.m.

Music for Youth has presented concerts in the auditorium of Pequot Library for the past 24 years. The mission of Music for Youth is to foster a love and knowledge of classical music and world music in young people through free children’s concerts and music programs in local schools, thus encouraging the study, performance, and understanding of music by youngsters of all ages and backgrounds.

This musical journey has been sponsored by donors who understand the value of music appreciation in the life of a child. We would like to thank our sponsors who have made this series of concerts possible for so many years.

The series finale will feature The Primakov/Lavrova duo. Two Juilliard-trained concert pianists who began their studies in Moscow, Russia founded the Lavrova/Primakov Duo in 2010. Natalia Lavrova and Vassily Primakov are both young stars of the last generation to descend from the Great Russian Conservatory tradition.

They have performed extensively in the US, most recently at the University of Vermont Lane Series in Burlington, Manchester Music Festival, Artist Series of Tallahassee, multi-concert tour of the state of Georgia and a month long South African tour, and have garnered numerous critical accolades.

A master class for advanced solo and duo pianists will follow the concert. Registration is required for participation; and interested students should email [email protected] for more information. There is a suggested donation of $35 for performing in the master class.

The concert in March is free for adults attending with children. Adults attending without children are asked to make a goodwill donation to help sustain future programs. Registration is not required but suggested by emailing [email protected].
