Bennington, VT -- On Sunday, February 10, at 4:00 p.m., Sage City Symphony will present a free concert at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College. Conducted by music director Michael Finckel, the program includes three pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven: Egmont Overture, Op. 84; Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, Op. 60; and Romance No. 2 in F major, Op. 50, for violin and orchestra featuring symphony concertmistress Kaori Washiyama.
Washiyama, an instructor in violin, viola, and chamber music at Bennington College since 2005, was trained at the Kyoto City University of Art and Music in her native Japan and pursued further studies at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy. In addition to numerous other honors, she is a first-prize winner of the Rodolfo Lipizer Violin Competition and a recipient of the prestigious Rode Award in Italy. She is the founding director of a well-established concert series bearing her name, the Kaori Washiyama Chamber Music Series, which presents musical events annually throughout Japan; she has been honored for these achievements with the Kyoto Music Award, the Tohdo Music Award, the Kyoto Prefecture Cultural Award, and the Baroque Saar Award. She is a core member of In the Music Room, which performs throughout southern California. Other recent American performances, including concert appearances with her partner, Daniel Shulman, have taken place in Boston, New York, San Francisco, and elsewhere. Recently she has performed numerous solo violin recitals and chamber music concerts throughout Japan and Italy. She has served as concertmistress of the Kyoto Chamber Orchestra, the Mozart Kammer Orchestra-Osaka, and, since 2011, Sage City Symphony.
The February 10 concert is sponsored by members of the Sage City Symphony board of directors.

In visual media, music is often the secret partner in storytelling, embodying the internal states of the characters in the narrative. This event will feature a variety of approaches to the marriage of music to picture, as offered by VCFA students, faculty and alumni—from fiction films, to animation, video art, webisodes, documentaries, game scores, and jingles. The intent is to explore and celebrate the diversity of music-to-picture relationships.
