The long-running recital series at Deerfield Presbyterian, suspended for the last year, will resume on Sunday, April 18th at 4:00PM. The guest artists will be The Harvey String Duo from Philadelphia.
Cassia Harvey, cello, and Myanna Harvey, violin, have played and performed together since childhood. Theirs is a partnership that spans teaching, writing, publishing, and playing. Myanna and Cassia have performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and the Philadelphia Academy of Music. They have also performed at such venues as the Reading Public Museum, the German Society of Pennsylvania, the Trinity Center for Urban Life, the Ethical Society of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, and at the Bournemouth International Music Festival, where they won first prize. Myanna’s playing is featured on the CD release Duos and Trios from Four Centuries, and Cassia is playing on The Russian Cello: Rare Treasures from Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union. They have written and published over two hundred books for strings and have sold upwards of 55,000 books to customers in over 50 countries. They maintain active teaching studios. Their program at Deerfield will include classical, sacred, folk and popular music; they will be joined at the piano by Evelyn R. Larter, the church’s director of music, for a few selections.
