TOCCATA, Elizabeth Pitcairn, Donna Axton

I'm behind the curve presenting the direct SNC connection to this event, but thought it would be of interest beyond the purely local angle. Elizabeth Pitcairn will be playing her Red Stradivarius Violin with TOCCATA in a series of performances from Sept. 11-17 in the Reno/Tahoe area. Pitcairn gave a wonderful recital at SNC two years ago, with Donna Axton, our music Prof, on the piano. Pitcairn is in fact playing with Donna as I type this, for a TOCCATA fundraiser in Gleshire/Truckee. The concert series will take place as follows:

Sunday, September 11 at 3:30pm at St. Theresa Catholic Church in South Lake Tahoe
Tuesday, September 13 at 7:30pm at St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral in Reno
Friday, September 16 at 7:00pm at Trinity Episcopal Church in Reno
Saturday, September 17 at 3:00pm at the North Tahoe Events Center in Kings Beach

A copy of the press release, with more detailed info, can be found here.

And here's a video of Pitcairn playing Op. 14 Samuel Barber Violin Concerto with TOCCATA last year, with Donna accompanying her on piano:
