Pianists, Maisie Brown and Kaitlyn Sakash in Concert

SUNDAY, JULY 21st at 4:00 P.M.

Off-to-College/Album Release Concert

Ellen Schwindt has been teaching music in Conway for more than 20 years. Maisie Brown has been her student for 13 years and Kaitlyn Sakash for 10 years. On July 21, these musicians will celebrate with an off-to-college/album release concert featuring classical solo piano music. Kaitlyn is headed for UNH’s honors program in the fall. Her path there will include music, as well as dance and a wide array of academic interests. Maisie is headed for Brown University, where she will begin an open-curriculum liberal arts program that includes music and academics.

Kaitlyn and Maisie achieved a high level of musical acumen and artistry while studying in Ellen’s Studio. Both young women tackled canon piano pieces and play them with expression and individuality. At the concert, to be played on the Steinway at The Little White Church in Eaton, Kaitlyn will showcase her penchant for Chopin with her interpretation of the Raindrop Prelude and the Nocturne in E flat major. Maisie’s set will include a piece from the Baroque Era by Domenico Scarlatti a movement of a Mozart Sonata.

Ellen often writes piano pieces for pleasure. The original piano pieces Ellen will play reflect those that Maisie and Kaitlyn will play; elements from music she plays or teaches often make their way into her music. She is releasing an album—that is, a book of notated piano pieces—dedicated to students she has had the privilege of teaching over the years.
