CINCINNATI -- Local classical music fans were treated to the world premiere performance of a violin concerto Thursday night at Memorial Hall.
The Cincinnati Symphony Music Laurete, Paavo Jarvi, and Constella Festival founding director Tatianna Berman reunited for the special event.
The concerto was composed by Charles Coleman especially for Berman. The performance, which began at 7:30 p.m., was preceded by an art exhibit.
Part of the Third Annual Constella Festival of Fine Arts, the concert will benefit musicians and artists in Greater Cincinnati.
The Constella Festival takes place at various venues through the Tri-State until Nov. 7 with the finale by violin superstar Joshua Bell.
The festival presents 20 concerts at 15 Cincinnati venues including world-premiere music and dance works, children’s concerts, workshops, and master classes, according to the festival's website. Most Constella events feature art exhibitions and collaborations by prominent Cincinnati artists and art galleries, including the Cincinnati Art Museum, Carl Solway Gallery and Brazee Street Studios.
