Cello Master Class with Carter Enyeart
Sunday, April 13 at 1 & 4 p.m.
Cellist Carter Enyeart will lead a series of Master Classes at the Community Music School on Sunday, April 13. Cello students will perform and be coached by Mr. Enyeart. Students, teachers, and those with a general interest in music are invited to observe.
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Carter Enyeart has enjoyed a distinguished and varied career. His experience as a member of the Pittsburgh and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras, principal cellist of the Dallas Opera, member of the renowned Philadelphia String Quartet and American Piano Trio and his duties as Associate Artistic Director and cellist of the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth give him strong credentials in the symphonic and chamber music fields. His teaching at Ball State University, Northwestern University, and the University of North Texas preceded his current appointment as Rose Ann Carr Millsap/Missouri Distinguished Professor of Cello at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory where he also coordinates the String Chamber Music Program. His concert appearances as soloist and chamber musician have been acclaimed in the United States and in the music capitols of Europe, Asia and South America. His first CD on Centaur (#2300) was hailed by John von Rhein in the Chicago Tribune as "one of the year's best contemporary chamber music albums." Walter Simmons of FANFARE commented..."an extraordinary performance...a reading of unerring precision and blistering intensity (Muczynski Cello Sonata)." A second CD of Muczynski's chamber music (Centaur #2634) was released in 2003 and features the first recording of "Gallery", Suite for solo cello. A pending Naxos CD release will feature the Suite for Cello and Winds by Chen Yi. He composed cello accompaniments for the Popper High School etudes which are published by International Music Company of NYC (IMC #3631), and was engaged as the editor for five new editions of cello études and technical studies soon to be published by IMC.
