Trio a treat for music lovers

Give yourself a treat Saturday afternoon — come out to a free concert by Trio Abelia: oboist Geralyn Giovannetti, hornist Denise Root-Pierce, and University of Windsor professor emeritus David Palmer on piano.

“This trio has been together since 2010,” says Palmer. “We get together a couple of times a year to play — and have fun!”

Giovannetti taught at UWindsor’s School of Music in the late 1980s before moving on to Brigham Young University in Utah.

Root-Pierce teaches at Eastern Michigan University and occasionally plays for the Windsor Symphony Orchestra.

The program will feature compositions by Frederic Duvernoy, Robert Kahn, Alyssa Morris, and Ferdinand Rebay. It begins at 2 p.m. May 18 in the Performance Hall, SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. E.
