Piaclava, a viola-clarinet-piano trio, will close the 23rd season of Music at Noon: The Logan Series at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.
Piaclava performs at noon on Thursday, March 21, in the McGarvey Commons of the college’s Reed Union Building. Admission is free and free reserved parking will be available in the Reed lot.
Unique instrumentation allows the New York City-based trio of Benjamin Fingland, clarinet, Beata Moon, piano, and Jessica Meyer, viola, to explore not only the standard canon for trio, but also a variety of solo and duo works from classical, popular, modern and world-music repertoires.
As part of its Logan Series appearance Piaclava also will give two concerts for students at the Erie School District’s Diehl Elementary.
Founded at Penn State Behrend by Warren philanthropist and arts advocate Kay Logan, Music at Noon: The Logan Series’ unique musical outreach has been honored with an Adventurous Programming Award by Chamber Music America and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The series receives major support from the Kay Logan Trust and additional funding from the Penn State Behrend Student Activity Fee, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts, the Erie Arts Endowment of ArtsErie, and Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour.
