NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts announces the final performance in their 2011 Chamber Music Series, The Colgate Chamber Players on Sunday at 2 p.m.
The Colgate Chamber Players, now in their 23rd season, are a select group of advanced players representing many disciplines across the Colgate University campus. Their director is Laura Klugherz and they will be joined by guest artist Ulla Baur.
Lauded by the NY Times as “dramatic ... emotional ... evocative,” and promoted by ABC of Madrid as a “magnificent violinist and violist who is a dedicated promoter of Spanish music,” Laura Klugherz made her Carnegie Hall debut to rave reviews in 1989. She studied in the U.S. and in Europe as a Fulbright scholar where she subsequently performed during many years as Concertmaster/Soloist of the Munich Chamber Orchestra and the Munich Bach Orchestra. A recipient of numerous awards and prizes (Fulbright Post-doctoral research Award, Spanish Ministry of Culture Post-doctoral Award, Juenge Kuenstler of Bavaria, San Jose Symphony Young Artist Award, Juan Morales Prize of Spain), she performs as a violin/viola recitalist throughout Europe, Latin America, and the United States. As a chamber musician, she performed as violinist of the Trio Ciudad de Sevilla, the Morrison String Quartet, and she has collaborated with many of the finest chamber music ensembles, including members of the Beaux Arts Trio, the Raphael Trio, the Cuarteto Latinomericano, and the Lydian Quartet. Ms. Klugherz has been on the faculty of the Raphael Trio Summer Chamber Music Seminar at Adamant, viola professor for the National Youth Orchestra of Spain, and is currently violin/viola professor at the Lake Placid Institute.
