Mezzo soprano Christina Carr to perform Sunday

Guest mezzo soprano Christina Carr joins the Allegheny Trio in concert 7 p.m. Sunday in the Great Hall of Salisbury University’s Holloway Hall.

The program features two major works by Robert Schumann. Liederkreis, Op. 39, is a set of songs written in 1840 based on poems by Joseph von Eichendorff which Schumann described as his “most romantic music ever.” Piano Trio No. 1, written in 1847 and described by the composer as a “time of gloomy moods,” is idiosyncratic and multifaceted and considered one of the definitive piano trios of the period.

Sponsored by the Department of Music, admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6385 or visit the SU website at
