Although we generally refrain, as a rule, from listing student music recitals, I have to make an exception for one coming up this weekend. For Rachel Grubb, who is pursuing a Graduate Artist Diploma in the UT School of Music, the line between "student" and "professional" really breaks down. And her recital on Sunday offers Knoxville music audiences a chance to hear some interesting pieces.
Grubb received her Bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee in the College Scholars Program with a double major in Orchestral Conducting and Violin Performance. During her undergraduate days, she was a member of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's Violin Section. And, last year she received a Masters of Music from Northwestern University.
Sunday's recital features Grubb as violinist and a number of other musicians performing in ensembles. The bill includes:
Naji Hakim: Capriccio for Violin and Organ (Jim Garvey, organ)
César Franck: Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major
Franz Schubert: Quintet in A Major "Trout Quintet" D. 667
Musicians in the ensembles will be James Garvey, organ; Cathy Whitten, piano; Douglas Temples, viola; Ben Rogers, cello; Graham Waldrip, bass; Aubrie Compitello, piano.
Where: James R. Cox Auditorium, UT Campus
When: Sunday, February 3, 6 pm
