[email protected] Albans Presents a Young Performer’s Concert Featuring Conor McMillen
At 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 6, Music at St. Alban’s ([email protected]) will present via Zoom a Young Performer’s concert featuring a promising 13-year-old jazz violinist accompanied on piano by his father.
Child prodigy and winner of several local competitions, Conor McMillen has studied at the Manhattan School of Music’s pre-college division and is now in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Middle School program. His father, Blair McMillen, a highly acclaimed concert pianist and pedagogue, has performed as soloist and chamber player and adjudicated competitions in this country and abroad. Among his many responsibilities is the co-directorship of the Rite of Summer Music Festival held annually on Governors Island.
The son and father duo will likely perform a movement from Beethoven’s spring sonata, one from a tango by Piazzolla, and several jazz standards. They perform here as a gift to [email protected] and in recognition of their ties with this area, where parents and grandparents Bruce and Sally McMillen have long had a home. Viewers may “attend” the concert and a performer Q&A afterwards via Zoom.
