Piedmont House Concert
On December 16, 2011 festival sponsors Craig and Letitia Casebeer opened up their beautiful home in Piedmont, California, in the hills above Oakland, to an audience of 60 enthusiastic music lovers. Festival musicians Ian Scarfe (piano), Philip Brezina (violin) and Charles Akert (cello) presented a program featuring short works by Bach, Faure, Brahms and Ravel, and Felix Mendelssohn's energetic Piano Trio in D Minor, Op. 49. The atmosphere was festive, with a buffet of dishes brought by hosts and guests alike, and bottles of Trinity County wines donated by Butter Creek Winery and One Maple Winery. This event raised nearly $2000 toward the 2012 Season of the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival. A special video of music, photos, and videos from the 2011 festival was put together for this occasion by festival oboist Synde Sullivan.
