Parrini Brothers Concert Continues Anniversary Season at W&J’s Olin Fine Arts Center

WASHINGTON, PA (March 1, 2012)—Italian born-brothers Fabio and Alberto Parrini will perform Bach, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, and Dvorak, among others, at a piano and cello concert March 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Washington & Jefferson College’s Olin Fine Arts Center.

Fabio’s diverse musical experience includes recordings, radio and TV broadcasts; solo recitals; concerto performances; chamber music; and collaborative work across Italy and the United States.

Alberto has been principal cellist of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic since 2007 and a member of the American Symphony since 2010. He also performs regularly with the New York Philharmonic and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. As a founding member of the Zukofsky Quartet, he has given performances of the complete string quartets of Milton Babbitt in New York and Chicago. He is a graduate of the Curtis Institute and the Juilliard School. He is a professor at the Bard College Conservatory of Music.

“To commemorate our 30th season, this year’s Arts Series is a “Greatest Hits” program, featuring exciting acts that have been here before and were popular crowd-pleasers. With a classical American Big Band concert to a one-man comedic performance of Macbeth, our season is diverse enough to please any taste,” said Dan Shaw of the Olin Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $12 general admission; $10 for seniors 60 and over, alumni, and non-W&J students; and $7 for children 12 and under.

A variety of additional theatre, music and art gallery events are scheduled throughout the school year. For more information about Olin Fine Arts Center, tickets and a schedule of events, call 724-223-6546.
