This Sunday, October 27, music professor Emily Yap Chua (piano) and David Tayloe (tenor) will give a special preview of their upcoming performance at Carnegie Hall. The preview recital, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Westminster Canterbury retirement community in Lynchburg at 3 p.m.
Chua and Tayloe, along with Elizabeth Castillo (soprano), will perform in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Tickets are available here.
“It’s a privilege to perform at this legendary venue,” said Chua. “Our program includes a range of British art song and world premieres of works by composer John Ratledge. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with these wonderful musicians, and for the support of our community as we prepare for January.”
The invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall is just the latest on a long list of accomplishments by Chua during her tenure at Randolph. An active soloist and chamber musician, her collaborations include performances with musicians of orchestras and institutions around the world, including recitals with members of the Cincinnati, San Francisco, Detroit, Nashville, Charlotte, and Virginia Symphony Orchestras, as well as faculty from the College-Conservatory of Music at University of Cincinnati (CCM-UC), The Juilliard School, Indiana University, Florida State University, and University of Miami, among others. Last year, she collaborated with soprano Katherine Jolly to produce the CD project, Preach, Sister, Preach. In addition, Chua has been recognized by Randolph with both the Katherine Graves Davidson Faculty Scholarship Award in 2010 and the Katherine Graves Davidson Faculty Service Award in 2018.
Tayloe is also no stranger to Randolph. He has been featured in the College’s Guest Artist Recital series on several occasions and performed alongside Chua at the National Opera Center in New York in 2018.Tags: Emily Yap Chua, faculty, music
