The Carthage Music Department presents The Brahms Project: Piano Solo at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11 in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.
Commemorating the 120th anniversary of Johannes Brahms’ death, the Brahms Project continues into the 2017-2018 season. In a series of solo and group performances by Prof. Wael Farouk and the Carthage Faculty Trio, the project celebrates the immense repertoire of music that Brahms created over his illustrious career. In the 2017-2018 season, Prof. Farouk and the Faculty Trio will present the entirety of Brahms’s collection of chamber music, featuring sonatas for piano, cello, and violin. The Brahms Project recognizes the brilliance and ingenuity of Brahms’s works, and hopes to share some of the most popular music of the late nineteenth century with students and members of the community alike.
Prof. Farouk brings more than a decade of experience teaching undergraduate and graduate-level piano students at institutes such as the Cairo Conservatory, Converse College, Manhattan School of Music, and Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. His personal performance career has taken him across five continents, where he has played venues such as White Hall in St. Petersburg, Schumann’s house in Leipzig, and Carnegie Hall in New York. Since coming to Carthage, Prof. Farouk has become the director of the Carthage Arts Academy and was a driving force in the creation of the Carthage Faculty Trio and the Brahms Project.
The concert is free, and open to the public. For more information, contact the Fine Arts Office at 262-551-5859.
