Walsh replaces Runnicles in St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble performance at Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts


Diane Walsh will replace Principal Conductor Donald Runnicles as the guest pianist for the St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble's April 11 concert at Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

The concert, "A Schubert Sandwich," will include two pieces by Franz Schubert flanking a composition by Joseph Haydn. The performance begins Friday at 8 p.m.

During her 35-year international career, Walsh has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and concert halls from Italy to Brazil. She is a past winner of the J.S. Bach International Competition, the Concert Artists Guild Award, the Young Concert Artists International Competition, the Munich International Piano Competition and the Salzburg International Mozart Competition.

St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, New York's preeminent chamber ensemble, is the artistic core of the larger Orchestra of St. Luke's. The smaller group performs internationally, with a repertoire ranging from the baroque to the contemporary.

Tickets to the Quick Center performance are $30. For tickets, call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
