Music at Oakmont’s 2018-19 grand finale


Oakmont Berger Center

Thursday May 9th 2019 - 1:30pm to

Music at Oakmont presents violinist Nigel Armstrong with pianist Elizabeth Dorman in the final concert of the 2018-19 season, on Thursday, May 9, 1:30 p.m. at Berger Center.

Armstrong, a Sonoma native, made his solo debut at age 12 with the Baroque Sinfonia in Santa Rosa. A winner in the prestigious Menuhin and Tchaikovsky Competitions, he has performed internationally as a recitalist and soloist with major orchestras. After an appearance with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Music Director Jeffrey Kahane described Armstrong as “one of many violinists with technique to burn… but to find that depth of musicianship in a young person is very unusual.” He is a graduate of both the Colburn School and the Curtis Institute, and serves currently as concertmaster of the Santa Cruz Symphony.

Dorman has been praised by Joshua Korman in the San Francisco Chronicle: “What’s more remarkable than a pianist who can play the demanding Bartók [Piano Concerto No. 3] with elegance and verve? How about one who returns after intermission to lead the orchestra’s double bass section?” Winner of numerous awards and competitions, Dorman is a doctoral candidate at New York’s Stony Brook University, where she also serves as Adjunct Lecturer of Piano Pedagogy. She performs frequently as soloist and chamber musician, and is a member of New York’s Bridge Arts Ensemble.

Armstrong and Dorman have chosen a varied program of works by Biber, Beethoven, Debussy, Fauré, and Schubert. For program details, including program notes, visit www.musicatoakmont.org.
