Columbia College Community Choir Features Violinist

Columbia, CA...The Columbia College Community Chorus, under the musical direction of Columbia College music professor John Carter, will present two performances of their “Spring Concert”, featuring the 50-voice chorus, soloists, and violin soloist Corinna Stoian. The concerts will be held at St. Matthews Lutheran Church, 13880 Joshua Way, Sonora. Performances will be Saturday April 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 22 at 3:00 p.m. Presale tickets are $10 each, $5 age 12 and under. Admission at the door is $12. Tickets may be purchased at Sonora Music, The Mountain Bookstore, Manzanita Book Store, and Murphys Music Co. or by calling (209) 586-5965....







Violinist Corinna Stoian will be featured in Ralph Vaughan Williams beautiful Serenade to Music. Composed originally for 16 solo voices and orchestra, the performance features 11 soloists, violin solo and piano. According to conductor John Carter, The Serenade, written in 1938, and set to the words of Shakespeare, “features, some of the British composer’s most beautiful writing. It is full of spectacular, unexpected harmony and chord changes as well as very beautiful vocal lines. It is a rarely performed piece; I am excited to have the opportunity to perform it with such a wonderful violinist and singers.” Vocal soloists include Linda Carter, Kathie Rudolph, Diana Eppler, Carl Rudolph, Jackson Israel, Gary Gober, Chuck Maxon, Isaiah Spratt, Melanie Wheeler, Marie Schafle, Jim Brandt, and Dillon Nelson.

In addition to the Serenade, there will be New England composer Daniel Pinkham’s Wedding Cantata. Originally written for a friend’s wedding in 1958, the piece has become a standard of the choral repertoire. Featuring chorus, soloists and text from The Song of Solomon, the four-movement piece reflects Pinkham at his most melodic and creative including unusual dissonances and unexpected accent. Soloists will include Carl Rudolph, Tenor and Marguerite Close, Soprano.



The program will also feature great oratorio choruses from Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Brahms a German Requiem, and Haydn’s The Creation; soloists in the Haydn will be Suzanne Burens, Jackson Israel, and Gary Gober.

The remainder of the concert will include folk songs, the popular audience sing along and a medley from Richard Rodgers The Sound of Music.

Born in Bucharest, violinist Corinna Stoian began her musical career at an early age, performing while still a student with prominent symphony orchestras throughout Romania, including Bucharest, Kronstadt, Hermannstadt, Ploiesti, Oradea and Bacau. She attended the prestigious “George Enescu School of Music” and the “Conservatory of Music” in Bucharest, studying with Modest Iftinchi and Stefan Gheorgiu, where she graduated with the highest distinctions. During this period she also won numerous prizes in national violin and chamber music competitions. Corinna Stoian furthered her studies at the famous “Folkwang Musikhochschule” (“Conservatory of Music”) in Essen, Germany with Mintcho Mintchev and completed her Soloist Diploma with honors (Konzertexamen).

After being appointed as concertmaster of the “Folkwang Chamber Orchestra Essen”, Germany, she attracted the interest and support of several music foundations, most notably “Werner Richard - Dr. Carl Dörken Foundation” and “Villa Musica”, Mainz. This resulted in numerous recital and solo concert engagements with important orchestras in Germany, such as the “Neue Philharmonie Westfalen”, the “Klassische Philharmonie Bonn”, the “Bergische Symphoniker”, and the “Philharmonisches Orchester Plauen - Zwickau” and “Detmolder Kammerorchester”, performing also in the “Saalbau - Essen” and the “Grosser Musiksaal - Basel”. She has collaborated with distinguished musicians, giving concerts in Italy, Israel, Romania, Bulgaria, France, Switzerland and United States.

In addition, she has recorded regularly for radio and television and has made numerous appearances at famous international festivals, including the “Schleswig - Holstein Musik Festival” (Germany), the “Rheingau Musik Festival” (Germany), the “Radio France Festival - Montpellier” (France) and the “Bear Valley Music Festival” (USA).

She was also invited to the “International Academy of Music of Montpellier”, France, as a faculty member among the world’s most renowned professors and performers.

Ms. Stoian performed with the “New York Piano Trio” and has completed a CD production featuring music from the solo violin repertoire of Sarasate, de Falla, Kreisler, Bériot and Piazzolla.

She has resided in the U.S.A. since August 2006 she, where she’s appeared as a soloist at the “Bear Valley Music Festival“, at the “Lesher Center for the Arts” - Walnut Creek (CA), with the “Merced Symphony” - Merced (CA), “Auburn Symphony” - Auburn (CA), "Academy at All Hallows Orchestra" - Sacramento (CA), “Folsom Lake Symphony” - Folsom (CA), at the "Sonora Bach Festival" and in numerous recitals and concerts in Amador and Calaveras County.

Conductor John Carter has led the Columbia College Community Chorus since 1984 when he began full-time teaching at Columbia College. In addition to his work with the Chorus, John has conducted a number of other groups including the Modesto Masterworks Chorus, the Modesto Symphony Chorus, church, school and community groups of all ages. He has been active on the board of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) and the Sonora Bach Festival. He holds music degrees from Chapman University and Westminster Choir College and a Certificate in the Professional Studies Program in Vocal Performance from Temple University.
