Classical concert to benefit Allenspark’s Old Gallery, June 25

ALLENSPARK – Once again, world-class musicians will be performing at The Old Gallery in Allenspark, June 25, at 7 p.m. Geraldine Walter, violist for the Takács String Quartet and former Principal Violist of the San Francisco Symphony will be performing with Boulder-based pianist Susan Olenwine. She’ll be performing on the Steinway B piano that is on loan donated by Kathy Bowers of Estes Park.

The duo will perform Suite for Viola and Piano, Op. 8 by Vavara Gaigerova, Selected Pieces for Viola & Piano from the Ballet “Romeo & Juliette” by Sergei Prokofiev and Sonato in B-flat, Op. 36 by Henry Vieuxtemps.

Formerly from Connecticut, Olenwine has Bachelor and Master Degrees in performance at Manhattan School of Music. She has also been the featured soloist with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra at Tchaikovsky Hall and with London’s Royal Philharmonic in St. Paul’s Cathedral.

“We’re thrilled to have musicians of this caliber perform at The Old Gallery,” said Board Member Margie Patterson. “Kathy Bower’s donation of a loan of her Steinway B enables us to provide quality musical programming in our small but vibrant mountain community.”

The concert is a benefit for programming at The Old Gallery and donations any amount are greatly appreciated and will go toward programming at the center for community and the arts. Donations will be taken at the door.

Refreshments will be served at a reception following the performance.

The Old Gallery is a center for community and the arts located at 14863 Colorado Highway 7. It was renovated in 2015, and is funded by a Capital Campaign, donations and grants. Additional donations can still be made at
