June Han, harp
The Yale School of Music continues its acclaimed Yale in New York Series on Sunday, April 10 with a program titled With Pluck: Music for Harp. The concert will feature YSM harp professor June Han alongside fellow faculty members and YSM student and alumni performers.
The program highlights YSM faculty harpist June Han and the Yale harp program. Han herself will perform Sequenza II by Luciano Berio. In the virtuosic solo work, Berio seeks to explore the capabilities of the instrument beyond its typical uses, which he describes as “seductive glissandi.”
Han will also team up with violinist Suliman Tekalli ’15 AD and cellist James Kim ’13 CERT for a performance of Henriette Renie‘s Trio for harp, violin, and cello, followed by Debussy‘s Sonata for flute, viola and harp with fellow YSM faculty members Ransom Wilson, flute, and Ettore Causa, viola.
The program will also present YSM students in a variety of works including Pasculli‘s Omaggio a Bellini for English horn and harp, and De Falla‘s Seven Popular Songs, sung by YSM artist diploma candidate Evanna Chiew, mezzo-soprano.
The concert takes place Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 7:30 pm in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Tickets are $25 general admission, $15 for students with current ID, and are available through the Carnegie Hall box office (57th Street & 7th Ave., New York City), online at www.carnegiehall.org, or CarnegieCharge: 212 247-7800.
