Bayside Trio to perform at Springvale museum

Anastasia Antonacos, pianist for the Bayside Trio

SPRINGVALE -- The Sanford-Springvale Historical Museum will host a classical music concert by The Bayside Trio at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.

The program will feature music that s pans three centuries. Works by classical composers of the past, Bach and Debussy, will be performed along with works by living American composers Paul Schoenfield and George Crumb.
Any program that combines Johann Sebastian Bach and George Crumb is bound to be extraordinary. It would be difficult to exaggerate the contrast between these two great composers. Music lovers are in for an exciting evening

Anastasia Antonacos, piano, and Nicole Rabata, flute, both well known to Springvale museum audiences, will be joined by Ben Noyes on cello. 

Antonacos has performed throughout Europe, in Russia and at Lincoln Center in New York. Her May 2011 recital at the Sanford-Springvale Historical Museum was repeated the following month during the World Piano Conference at Novi Sad in Serbia. She holds doctoral and master’s degrees in piano performance from Indiana University and is recognized as a world-class pianist. She has been a member of the faculties of the University of Southern Maine’s School of Music, Bates College and Bowdoin College. She lives in Portland, where she was named one of the 100 Most Influential People
of Portland by the Phoenix.

Rabata, playing flute, is a faculty member at Colby College. She is no stranger to Springvale, having performed here on several occasions. She holds a master’s degree in performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, and has performed extensively throughout Europe and the United States as a soloist and chamber musician. 

Originally from Maine, Noyes studied in Boston before moving to San Francisco to attend the School of the Arts, a magnet high school. After graduating, he was selected by Yo-Yo Ma to participate as soloist and recitalist throughout China, performing with the Beijing, Chengdu, Shenzen and Shanghai Symphony Orchestras. Noyes has a master’s degree in music from Northwestern University. He has won top awards in many competitions. He performed in Springvale three years ago as a member of the Longfellow Trio.

Ttickets for Saturday's concert are $15; people 21 and younger may attend for free. Tickets may be reserved by calling the museum at 324-2797. The museum is located at 505 Main St. in Springvale and is handicapped-accessible.
