The Sherer Trio — comprised of Goshen College faculty members Solomia Soroka, violin; Matthew Hill, piano; and Dato Machavariani, cello — will present a concert of chamber music in Rieth Recital Hall. This recital is given as part of the 2021 Sherer Violin and Piano Competition. Open to the public.
The Sherer Trio is named in honor of the late Lon and Kathryn Sherer, Goshen College Professors Emeritus of Music. For 40 years, Lon (violin) and Kathryn (piano) created, nurtured and developed instrumental music at Goshen College, bringing the program to unprecedented heights through their talent, hard work, and pedagogy.
This special return double-bill concert will be a Midwestern musical night for the soul! Described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe, Indiana-based singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer’s music has always explored the intersection of the spiritual and the daily, the sacred and the ordinary. With 15 solo albums, Newcomer has attracted a devoted and international following with her warm voice and exquisite melodies. And when you listen to Ohio-based Over the Rhine, the supremely talented wife-husband jazzy folk duo, you will quickly fall under the spell of their compelling, soothing and earthy voices, and their insightful lyrics. God, love and death often show up in their faith-infused music as the couple – Linford Detweiler, pianist and guitarist, and Karin Bergquist, vocalist and guitarist – explore life’s biggest questions.
