as a fundraiser for the Yellow Springs Senior Center in the Great Room of the Senior Center at 3:30 pm on Sunday, December 22, 2013. Suggested donation $10. 

There will be a short raffle of gift cards from local and area businesses.

Anyango Yarbo-Davenport, violin

Winner of the 2011 Presser Music Award for Artistic and Academic Excellence, violinist Anyango Yarbo-Davenport has been praised by international critics for her “captivating performance” and “sparkling rich” sound. Born in Munich, Germany, she has appeared twice at Carnegie Hall in 2010 and was the winner of the “Most Distinguished Violinist Award” and the “Special Mention Award as Composer” for her composition 'In Memory of My Father’ from the 2010 IBLA Foundation World Competition in Italy, performing on the foundation’s Stradivarius violin at the Winner’s Gala. Currently she is a sabbatical replacement Professor of Violin, Viola and Chamber Music at Marshall University and first violin of Quatuor Mahogany, 2012-2013 Quartet-in-Residence of Ensemble du Monde. 

The Senior Center is very glad to welcome Ms. Yarbo-Davenport back to play chamber music again in the Center's "chamber."

Sam Reich, piano

Pianist Sam Reich is actively performing solo and chamber music in the United States, Europe and South America. Recent performances from 2011-2012 include concerts for the Ohio Arts Council, the Summit Music Series, the Bogota International Piano Festival, the International Women in Music Festival, and the Eastman Messiaen Festival. Dedicated to New Music, Mr. Reich premiers new works by composers every year, and has been featured at The Stone Music Space in New York playing music by young emerging composers. Mr. Reich is a graduate of Eastman School of Music where he served as a Teaching Assistant and Accompanist, as well as at the Interlochen Arts Festival in Michigan. He has participated in master classes with Yoshi Nagai and Daniel Pollack. 

Mr. Reich has given numerous concerts to benefit the Senior Center and has lead and played music for Yellow Springs music and musical theater productions. 

The last piece, by Cesar Franck, for violin and piano, was written in 1886 as a wedding gift for the pre-eminent violinist of his day, Eugene Ysaye, Belgian violinist, conductor, teacher and composer, for his wedding to Louise Bourdeau de Coutrai. This composition is widely considered one of the most beautiful in classical music. Having been given to Ysaye by Franck the morning of the wedding, the Sonata was hastily rehearsed, and he played it as part of the wedding ceremony! He continued to play it as one of his signature pieces throughout his life. 

Please come to the Senior Center, 227 Xenia Avenue, Yellow Springs, Ohio, rear side entrance under the car port, and enjoy this special musical event, 3:30 pm Sunday, December 22, 2013.
