Pianist Gayle Blankenburg is joined by violinist, pianist and composer Mark Menzies in a program of music by Cameron-Wolfe, Debussy, Harrison, and Menzies.

Blankenburg, a pianist specializing in modern music and chamber music of all eras, has played concerts to great critical acclaim in such venues as the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Schoenberg Institute in Vienna, Austria, Cooper Union in New York City, and both Zipper Auditorium and REDCAT in Los Angeles. One of her most recently recorded CDs of Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot lunaire and Cabaret Songs has received glowing reviews in Gramophone Magazine, the American Record Guide and Opera News.

Menzies has been described in the Los Angeles Times as an "extraordinary musician" and a "riveting violinist." His career as a viola and violin virtuoso, chamber musician and pianist, conductor and advocate of contemporary music, has seen performances in Europe, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and across the United States.

Menzies: Whimsy

The program is a special pre-tour concert, for their tour this May to Christchurch, New Zealand where Mark is on faculty at Canterbury University. The Pomona concert will be dedicated to the victims of the recent massacre in Christchurch.
