SUMMIT, NJ - Violinist Eric Wyrick, concertmaster of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra (NJSO), will join pianist Mitchell Vines for an Afternoon Music recital of violin and piano masterpieces at 4 p.m., April 13, at The Unitarian Church.

Beethoven's 'Spring' Sonata is on the program, along with works by Telemann, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky.  Following the concert, the audience is invited to join the artists for a reception in the lobby.
        
 
As concertmaster, violinist Wyrick leads the first violin section of the New Jersey Symphony, and plays solo concertos every year with the orchestra.  Since 1988, he has also been a member and frequent leader of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.  Born in New York City, Wyrick started playing the violin at four years old.  He attended The Juilliard Pre-College Division and later The Juilliard School.  His orchestral career began with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic at the age of 14, and he has appeared as a soloist with the Danish Radio Orchestra and the Orchestre de Toulouse, among others.
         
An active chamber musician, Wyrick can be heard frequently with the NJSO Chamber Players, and is a founding performer at the Bard Music Festival.  He lives in South Orange.
        

Pianist Vines’ active performing career has taken him to Europe, South America, Asia and throughout the United States.  The German newspaper Hessiche-Niedersachsische Allgemeine wrote, “The sensitive playing of American pianist Mitchell Vines captivated the audience. He performed with virtuosity and bravura.”
 
Vines frequently performs with such groups as New York Summer Opera Scenes, The Berkshire Choral Festival, and Vermont Music and Arts Center.   With flutist Tia Roper, he recently released a CD for Albany Records called The Magic Flute.  Other recordings include compositions by Paul Zeigler; a recital with Japanese soprano Selena Miyazaki; and vocal chamber music by North German composers on the Syrinx label.
 
He is a music director for theater, opera, cabaret and for The Unitarian Church in Summit.  He is also artistic director of Afternoon Music.
      
Tickets for Afternoon Music are $25, $20 for seniors, and students are welcomed free. T ickets will be sold at the door, and after worship services on March 30 and April 6.  For more information, call 908 / 273-3245, or visit the church website at  www.ucsummit.org.  The Unitarian Church is located at 4 Waldron Avenue.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.
