Concert to Celebrate 130th Birthday!
A concert to celebrate a 130th Birthday? Yes! You are invited to a classical concert on March 27th to honor the life of Rosina Lhevinne (1880-1976); a gifted pianist, "teacher in the truest sense," wife, mother and world renowned performer who is interred at Maple Grove. If a teacher is defined by the success of her students then Rosina was very very accomplished! Her most famous students at the Juilliard School include Van Cliburn, John Williams, James Levine, Misha Dichter and John Browning. They will not be at her birthday celebration but you will enjoy the talents of three gifted classical musicians who will be playing her favorite Chopin. Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Stenhammar and Bartok pieces in the Celebration Room at the beautiful Center at Maple Grove (127-15 Kew Gardens Road, Kew Gardens) Every "party" has refreshments and this one will begin with a wine and cheese reception at 7:00pm (Birthday Cake for dessert of course!). The concert will commence at 7:30pm. On March 27th, we will also be celebrating Chopin's 200th Birthday Anniversary, joy, talent, our lovely guests, beautiful beautiful music and the loving "spirit" of Rosina Lhevinne. It will be a night to remember!
