Currently an assistant professor of violin at Minnesota’s Concordia College, violinist Sonja Harasim returns to her hometown of Houston each year to perform a recital with some of Houston’s most accomplished musicians. Last month, Harasim (and friends) dropped by Houston Public Media’s Geary Studio to record two of the selections from this year’s recital, The Sounds of Downton: A Celebration of Early 20th Century British Chamber Music, which took place March 1 at Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. In these videos, Harasim, pianist Keith Weber, and violist Whitney Bullock perform “Dumka: Duo Concertante” by Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979); and “Phantasie Piano Quartet in F# Minor,” by Frank Bridge (1879-1941), featuring Harasim, Bullock, cellist Louis-Marie Fardet, and pianist Andrew Staupe.

Harasim and friends also talked with Houston Public Media’s St.John Flynn.
