OCCMS will present Trios for Violin, Viola & Piano with violinist Walter Schwede, violist Patricia McCarty and pianist Cary Lewis.

The program includes Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 102 by Ignaz Lachner, Trio, Op. 115 by Robert Fuchs, Trio (1932) by Aram Khachaturian, and Trio, Op. 30 by Joseph Longen. There will be a 20-minute intermission with light refreshments prepared and served by the Taft High Culinary Club.
Violinist Walter Schwede began studying music when he was eight years old and was selected Concertmaster of the School Orchestra of America in 1965 as the youngest member of the tour. He earned his M.A. at Catholic U. of America and a Ph.D. at New York University. He has served as Concertmaster of both the Seattle Opera and Nashville Symphony and been Artist-in-Residence at the U. of Wyoming. Mr. Schwede is an active recitalist, chamber musician and soloist with orchestras and music festivals and has been a featured violinist in a Naxos label recording of the Violin and Piano Sonatas of Joseph Martin Kraus. He has served on the faculty of Western Washington University et al.
Violist Patricia McCarty has been acclaimed on five continents for performances of repertoire from Bach to Keith Jarrett. Her recordings have also received international accolades. Ms. McCarty graduated magna cum laude from the U. of Michigan one year after winning the First Silver Medal and Radio Prize in the Geneva International Competition at age eighteen. She has also been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalist Grants and the Paine Award for performance of new American music. As chamber musician, she has performed at festivals including Aspen, Marlboro, Tanglewood, Sarasota, Bay Chamber Concerts, Bowdoin, Hokkaido, and the Australian String Academy. Ms. McCarty teaches at the Meadowmount School of Music.
Cary Lewis is in constant demand as a collaborative pianist for soloists and chamber music groups. He joined William Preucil and Dorothy Lewis as members of the Lanier Trio, which was featured on NPR’s Saint Paul Sunday broadcast. Their recording of the complete Dvorak Trios was honored by TIME magazine as one of the ten best music recordings of any kind in 1993. He was a Fulbright scholar for two years in Vienna after earning degrees from the U. of North Texas and a PhD and Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music. Dr. Lewis is retired from the faculty of Georgia State U. in Atlanta and is now based in Portland, Oregon but still performs in festivals and concerts worldwide. He has recorded works on at least eleven top labels.
