Table for Two
Saturday, March 10, 3pm
A Piano Duo, features American pianist Ilana Joyce Cady and Mexican-American pianist Linda Chávez. Their journey together began with a passion for finding new and undiscovered music and sharing it with a wide range audience.
The two pianists met at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts where both are pursuing postgraduate degrees in Piano Performance. Cady and Chavez took on this project independently from school requirements and have now been invited to participate in advanced chamber for Longy and will remain a duo for future endeavors outside of school.
Soon after playing together, Table for Two won a competition in Graz, Austria where they were invited to debut at the Styriarte Festival. They opened the festival with their all female composer program. The duo has also performed at the Thayer Performing Arts Center in Lancaster, MA and will perform later in the season in Vermont and Texas.
Their current program consists of all women composers including Fanny Mendelssohn (Felix Mendelssohn’s sister), French composer Cecile Chaminade, American composer Amy Beach, and others, creating a rich and diverse recital.
In addition to providing high quality music their goal is to make way for “old” and “new” music that is not often heard on the stage. Table for Two is committed to sharing their art and passion within communities where classical music is embraced and celebrated and in areas where classical music is up and coming. Sharing music is their greatest joy and every opportunity is a new avenue to make music and grow community.
