    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Minnesota Orchestra Concertmaster Performs at CSS

Violinist Erin Keefe, the concertmaster for the Minnesota Orchestra, gave a recital at the Mitchell Auditorium last week! Keefe was joined by Anna Polonsky, a highly sought-after pianist who is known for her performances with Yo Yo Ma, the Emerson String Quartet, the Moscow Virtuosi and many others. The concert marked the first of three 2017-18 programs which will be presented at the Mitchell by Matinee Musicale, Duluth’s classical music recital series.

Here’s a brief note about the series:

Founded in 1900, Matinee Musicale is one of the oldest recital series in the country. It has a rich history of collaboration with the College, particularly through its faculty and our Benedictine Sisters including:
  • Sister Monica Laughlin (1923-2014), a chair of our Music Department who was a longtime member of Matinee Musicale’s Artist Committee
  • Sister Mary Richard Boo (1929-2014), a CSS President and faculty member who wrote a history of Matinee Musicale in the year of its centennial (2000)
  • Sister Martina Hughes (1902-1992), a CSS President, Music Department Chair, and nationally-known composer who introduced some of her own works through the Manuscript Group of Matinee Musicale during the 1940s

I enjoyed the concert very much and look forward to attending more in the future.
