Series of Concerts to Honor Bert Lucarelli

On December 10 and 11, 2015, The Hartt School will present a series of concerts to honor recently retired, professor emeritus Bert Lucarelli.  Professor Lucarelli has retired after 45 years of teaching. 

On December 10, Hartt is celebrating his legacy by hosting a recital performed by his former Hartt students. The recital begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Society of Hartford, 50 Bloomfield Ave.  The concert is free and open to the public.  Performing on the recital are:

Karen Birch Blundell
Dan Brimhall
Jolie Chrisman
Dan Frostman
Ziqian Guan
Trevor Johnson
Katy Kammeyer
Galit Kaunitz
Micheal Loveland
Lissa Stoltz

On December 11, the Hartt Symphony Orchestra will accompany five of Professor Lucarelli's students as they perform the John Corigliano's Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra (1975), which was written for him.  Each student will perform one of the movements.  This concert will be live-streamed for those who cannot attend in person.  The soloists will be:

Karen Birch Blundell
Stuart Breczinski
Casey Hill
Charles Huang
Kirstin Leitterman

In the meantime, here are some photos of Prof. Lucarelli from throughout his career.

We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us, as we pay tribute to Mr. Lucarelli’s teaching career at The Hartt School, and show our appreciation for his warmth, generosity and artistry.

  1. I'm interested in reserving this beautiful place. Placing a music show which does not have cultural preferences becomes difficult in a banquet hall environment. It requires planning and decorating imagination. The venues in Chicago have the right décor for any event.
