Musical Trio Returns To Lunch With Books
WHEELING — The Ohio County Public Library’s next Lunch With Books live stream program will feature the return of the Zaffiro Trio.
The program will take place virtually online starting at noon on Tuesday, April 20.
A pleasant afternoon performance of classical music will be provided by the Pittsburgh-based trio. The program will feature live performances of Mozart & Beethoven, plus special surprise solos. The Zaffiro Trio is comprised of Tina Faigen (piano), Mary Beth Malek (clarinet) and Paula Tuttle (cello), all faculty members at the University of Pittsburgh’s Music Department.
This program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the Lunch With Books Livestream page on the library’s official website. Log into your Facebook or YouTube account during the program to leave questions for our presenters in the comments box. They will answer them during the live broadcast.
The Zaffiro Trio joins together the superb artistry of three musicians with extensive backgrounds in performance, recording and teaching. Faigen, in addition to her active solo career, has a library of published music editions, Malek and Tuttle are both long-time members of the Pittsburgh Opera and Ballet Orchestras. The Zaffiro combination of instruments provides the audience the opportunity to hear beloved works of the great masters, such as Brahms and Beethoven that are rarely heard in concert. Together these three founding members of Zaffiro Trio bring a unique quality of sound, expertise and sensitivity to their ensemble that audiences adore.
Lunch With Books is the library’s flagship program for adult patrons. These lunchtime programs feature authors, poets, musicians, historians and more at noon every Tuesday. Bring lunch (to your computer) and feed your brain.
