On Monday, the program will include a Pelham Manor premiere of a Folk Song Suite written by Pelham’s exceptional composer and pianist William Healy.
Both Allen and Wincenc and are faculty members of the Juilliard School and Stony Brook University. Solomon maintains private teaching studios in her home in Pelham and with Atelier Constantin Pompescu in Greenwich, and coaches the cellists of The Greenwich Young Artists Philharmonic. A Yale graduate, she won the Jacobs Music School Concerto Competition.
