World-class string trio comes to Illinois College


The Walden Chamber Players is bringing their string trio to Illinois College as part of the Fine Arts Series on Saturday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Rammelkamp Chapel.

Founded in 1997, the Boston-based Walden Chamber Players has garnered a reputation for being one of the most exciting and versatile chamber groups performing today. The string trio featuring violist Lila Brown, cellist Ashima Scripp and violinist Asmira Woodward-Page will grace the Rammelkamp stage collaborating with Illinois College pianist and Professor Garrett Allman.
“This will be a program of great music with outstanding, world-class performers. The concert will feature the string trio from the Walden Chamber Players performing pieces by Mozart, Zoltán Kodály and Schoenberg,” Timothy Kramer, professor of music at Illinois College, said. “The last piece on the program will be a piano quartet by Schumann with Garrett Allman playing the piano with the string trio.”

The concert is free for all students. Tickets for the concert are $15, available at the door.

Along with their main concert on Saturday, the trio will also be featured on Friday, October 19, at 4 p.m. as they play alongside Illinois College senior Matt Nall. They will also be part of a special convocation on Monday, October 22, at 11 a.m. where they will perform a Shostakovich string quartet with Aaron Jacobs, concertmaster of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. Both events will be in Rammelkamp Chapel and are free and open to the public.
