Donna Lee and Keith Robinson Perform Together

Cellist Keith Robinson and pianist Donna Lee will perform in the Ludwig Recital Hall on Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. The program will include "Adagio" by Benedetto Marcello, as well as works by Camille Saint-Saëns and Richard Strauss. The concert is free.

Robinson and Lee released a CD together last year on Blue Griffin Recording titled 'Mendelssohn: Complete Works for Cello and Piano.' The pair has also performed "The Complete Works for Cello and Piano by Beethoven" together on many occasions.

Cellist Keith Robinson is a founding member of the Miami String Quartet and has been active as a chamber musician, recitalist, and soloist since his graduation from the Curtis Institute of Music. Robinson has had numerous solo appearances with orchestras throughout the U.S., including the New World Symphony, The American Sinfonietta and the Miami Chamber Symphony.

Highlights of recent seasons include performances in New York City at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, engagements in Boston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Paul and Philadelphia. Internationally, Robinson has performed in Bern, Cologne, Istanbul, Lausanne, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong, Taipei and Paris.

Donna Lee, pianist and associate professor of music at Kent State University, has appeared as a soloist and collaborative artist at Kennedy Center's Concert Hall and Terrace Theater in Washington, DC and Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York City. She has also performed in Asia, Europe and throughout the US, with recent performances in Wuhan, China; Brno, Czech Republic; and Maui, Hawaii.

Lee earned her doctorate from Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University, her master's from The Juilliard School, and her bachelor of music degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, where she studied with prominent artist-teachers Julian Martin, the late Rudolf Firkusny, and Thomas Schumacher, respectively.

The KSU MFA Show includes the work of more than 30 students in a variety of media, including textiles, prints, sculptures, ceramics and assemblages.

Many non-traditional pieces are represented in the exhibition, including a monofilament weaving by Lauren Mangeri and a painting on glass by Scott Goss. 

Kathryn Shinko's piece pictured at right,  "The Vicious Dog," is a cross-stitched textile work which she describes as a representation of the horrors that can lurk under the pleasant facade of the middle American home.

The show runs through Friday, Feb. 15 in the School of Art Gallery, located in the Art Building on the Kent Campus. For more information, call 330-672-7853.  Read Full Article

The 1973 event featured grounding-breaking models of color Billie Blair, Pat Cleveland, Alva Chinn, Norma Jean Darden, Charlene Dash, Bethann Hardison, Barbara Jackson, China Machado, Jennifer Brice, Ramona Saunders, and Amina Warsuma.

Cost for the event is $35 for admission to the pre-screening VIP reception and lecture and screening, $20 for admission to the lecture and screening and $10 for student admission to the lecture and screening.
