Violist Barbara Corbató will present a faculty recital at Hope College on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 11 a.m., with the live performance available for viewing online at hope.edu/live.
Out of an abundance of caution due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person audience.
Corbató will be joined by pianist Christina Krause. Together they will perform
“Passacaglia on an Old English Tune,” by Rebecca Clarke; “Viola Sonata,” by George Walkerand; and “In Memory,” by Quinn Mason.
A lecturer in music at Hope, Corbató is currently assistant principal viola of the Grand Rapids Symphony, where she has performed since 1990. In addition, she is an active chamber musician, performing with the Perugino String Quartet since 2005.
Before settling in West Michigan, she performed in the New World Symphony, Spoleto Festival of South Carolina and Italy, and the orchestras of Columbus, Flint and Saginaw. She has also participated in music festivals in Santa Barbara, Aspen and Keystone, Colorado, and, most recently, Saugatuck. She received Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the University of Michigan, where her principal teachers included Donald McInnes and Yizhak Schotten.
