On Saturday May 25th in Van Buren Hall, CITV celebrates the artistry of distinguished violist Ronald Carbone, joined by mezzo-soprano Hailey McAvoy and pianist Thomas Weaver. Their program includes music of Brahms, Bridge, Amram, Honegger and Juon, and concludes CITV’s 14th Season.

Ronald Carbone, a regular member of CITV’s Broad Street Orchestra and Broad Street Chamber Players, has had a distinguished career as a chamber music, orchestral and solo performer in both the United States and Europe. He has been Principal Violist of the American
Ballet Theatre Orchestra, an Associate Member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and member of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and Barcelona Symphony Orchestra.

Carbone has performed regularly with the New York Philharmonic, been violist of the Composers String Quartet and the Grammy-nominated New York Piano Quartet, and a frequent guest with Spectrum Concerts in Berlin, Germany. In New York City he has been a highly regarded teacher and recording artist, and in Columbia County the founding music director of the Canaan Chamber Music Festival.
Having performed works of Chausson, Respighi, Haydn, Szymanowski and others with the Broad Street Orchestra and Broad Street Chamber Players, mezzo-soprano Hailey McAvoy is well-known to CITV audiences. Throughout the United States she has inspired listeners with the warmth and richness of her voice and her consummate musicianship. McAvoy is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and Bard’s Graduate Vocal Arts Program.

Thomas Weaver is an American pianist, composer and conductor currently on the faculties of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and Boston University Tanglewood Institute. An active soloist and chamber musician, Weaver has been presented by many organizations, including Carnegie Hall, the La Jolla Music Society, Princeton University Concerts, and the New York Chamber Music Festival. His performances in the United States have taken him to many cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, San Diego, Washington DC, Nashville and Dallas, in addition to the Tanglewood Music Festival.

CITV Artistic Director David Smith comments, “How special it is to share the exceptional artistry of Ron Carbone, for many years a devoted member and essential contributor to the talented family of CITV musicians. This concert seems to me long overdue. And as a part-time resident of Columbia County, Ron is truly delighted to be offering this appealing and exciting program right here in Kinderhook.”
