Young Musicians at the Bennington Museum

12:00AM / Thursday, July 13, 2006

Following in the tradition of great musical performances at the Bennington Museum, 18 year-old musicians Julian Cartwright and Irene Fitzgerald-Cherry perform a concert on Sunday, July 30.

Commencing at 3:00 p.m. in the Ada Paresky Education Center of the museum, the concert is free to the public.

A native of nearby Cambridge, New York, Irene Fitzgerald-Cherry began playing violin at the age of nine. Her early introduction to music led to a prolific musical career by the age of 18. Currently under the tutelage of Joana Genova-Rudiakov, Irene's performances extend to many areas of the region, including her most recent performance at the Young Artist Recital at Ventfort Hall in Lenox, Massachusetts, and a full program of Bach, Brahms, Paganini, Stravinsky, and Sarasate at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, New York.

A member of several orchestras over the last few years, Irene is also the recipient of many music related scholarships. Her enthusiasm and dedication led to a position in 2005 as the assistant concertmaster for the New Opera performance of Don Giovanni at Williams College.

Julian Cartwright, composer, violinist, and guitarist, cannot remember a time when music was not a part of his life.

Julian began his musical career at age 4, when he began Suzuki violin. At age 18, Julian has performed with the Julliard Pre- College Symphony and Orchestra. His ability as a composer and a performer have won him accolades from many musical organizations. Most recently his piece "Grasshopper" was selected for the Vox Novus "60x60 Project."

A high school senior, Julian manages to remain an honors student, a Commended Scholar, and an active participant in his school's orchestra, chamber orchestra, and quartet.

This concert offers a unique opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy the music of these young, inspiring musicians.
