a special concert by violinist PAUL STEIN

Monday, June 10, 2013, 7:00 p.m.

Come to the library for a free hour of blissful, classical music and more! PAUL STEIN, a violinist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the last 30 years, will bring an all-new program to the Crowell Public Library on Monday, June 10, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Playing music by Bach, John Williams, Liszt and Henry Mancini, Paul Stein brings many sides of the violin to the San Marino Library. He has been a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic for over 30 years, and has performed many family concerts with Chamber Music Express. The library concert is designed for families with children eight years and older.

The unaccompanied violin demonstrates many colors and melodic contours. Bach wrote some of his most profound music for it. The richness of Bach's harmonies will be on display at the June 10 concert, as well such popular music as the “Tango” from Scent of a Woman and “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Paul Stein has been a featured soloist at the Hollywood Bowl and has worked with Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini, Andre Previn, Esa-Pekka Salonen as well as Gustavo Dudamel. He was principal second violinist with the Colorado Symphony and performed with the Santa Fe Opera orchestra. Born in Dallas, Paul received a Bachelor of Music from Southern Methodist University and Master of Music from Yale University. He has moderated seminars and lectured at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute and conventions of the Music Teachers Association of California. He is a Certificate of Merit teacher of violin and viola, from beginning to advanced and is on the faculties of Pasadena City College and Glendale College.
Don’t miss this special, free night of music in San Marino!
