On Sunday, November 10th at 2:00 p.m. at the Chatham United Methodist Church, The Suburban Music Study Club of New Jersey will host a recital performed by middle and high school classical musicians from Northern New Jersey. But for over 20 years, the driving force behind this annual recital, is and has been, Chatham piano teacher, Carmela Cicere. Ms. Cicere has been teaching in Chatham for over 40 years and her students have been playing professional level classical music all that time. In fact, last year every single one of her students performed at Carnegie Hall when they were honored by the Piano Teachers’ Society of America. Ms. Cicere's students have been performing recitals of high quality solo piano music, duet, and even music for four pianists. Ms. Cicere, a singer and pianist, is also a published composer, too. Her Variations on Three Blind Mice for two pianos is still popular. She has gathered talented, local students for this Fall showcase of classcial instrumental music.
Ms. Cicere has helped the Suburban Music Study Club and local music students grow by giving young classical musicians in this area the opportunity to play for high-quality classical recitals like this one; all are invited to this free recital to hear music by Bach, Chopin, Debussy, Mozart, and Schubert played on the piano, violin, oboe, bassoon, and flute.
