DSE Presents opened our 2018-2019 season with a magnificent performance, “Dolce Suono Trio Classics and Commissions” in which our acclaimed trio of Mimi Stillman, flute, Nathan Vickery, cello, Charles Abramovic piano performed works by Mendelssohn, Martinu, Zhou Tian, Jeremy Gill, and Leonard Bernstein’s overture to Candide in Charles Abramovic’s new arrangement. We were delighted that composer Jeremy Gill joined us and introduced his work. The program was greeted with an enthusiastic standing ovation.

In a busy opening weekend, Dolce Suono Trio performed and taught a masterclass at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA on Saturday, and did a live broadcast from WRTI Radio’s performance studio on Friday.
