On Saturday, Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis hosted Butler Professor of piano Kate Boyd and New Zealand professional violinist Justine Cormack for a recital of two Beethoven sonatas. The event was originally scheduled for 2020 to celebrate Beethoven's 250th anniversary, but was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The professor played on the cathedral's Steinway, Model D piano. The duo initially met in graduate school during the 1990s. "We played together, then after college we kept in touch, and took a leap of faith on this project to celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday playing ten of his sonatas because we remembered we enjoyed performing together," said Boyd after the performance.
Christopher Caruso-Lynch, Cathedral Canon and Director of Music, said that the concert series for the year was "one for the record books." The next concert scheduled is on Feb. 18 at 6:30 p.m. The cathedral will be hosting the Rob Dixon Trio, led by IUPUI adjunct professor, Artistic director of the Indy Jazz Fest, and saxophonist Rob Dixon. These concerts are free to the public.
