Welcome To The 42st Anniversary Season of Friends Of Vienna!

The Friends of Vienna will begin their 42nd annual concert season on Sunday September 16 at 3:30 p.m. at the Unity Church, 1243 Delaware Avenue.

Touring cellist Natasha Farny and Israeli-born pianist Eliran Avni, both faculty members of the Fredonia School of Music, will be joined by former UB faculty violinist Yuki Numata Resnick for a program which has a decided French flair:  Darius Milhaud’s Scaramouche, for cello and piano, Poulenc’s Improvisations for solo piano and Ravel’s incomparable Piano Trio.

Numata Resnick, who left her position at UB to concentrate on her leadership role in the after-school Buffalo String Works program, which helps kids largely from immigrant families on the Lower West Side, will perform the fiendishly difficult Sonata No. 4, E minor, “Fritz Kreisler” for solo violin, by the Belgian composer Eugène Ysaÿe. 

All concerts are at 3:30 PM at the Unity Church, 1242 Delaware Ave. There is ample free parking behind the Church.  More information will follow.  Please like us on Facebook, and if you are on our mailing list, check your mailbox!
