Violinist to perform at Italian Cultural Society
Please join us on Thursday, Sept. 17, at the Bedford Library for the Bedford Italian Cultural Society meeting. Aurora Pearson will be performing on the violin that evening sharing her renditions of Italian music. Aurora is both a classical violinist and a fiddler. She grew up surrounded by music in her family and has loved it all her life. Her teachers have included Mowry Pearson, Cornelia Schwartz, Elise Kuder, Amy Cann, Kato Havas, and Candace Wharton. She attended the Pine Hill Waldorf School, the Putney School, and Notre Dame Les Oiseaux in Verneuil sur Seine, France.
Aurora is an area freelancer and has performed at a wide range of events in Hillsborough County and other parts of New England, including the Keene Chamber Orchestra, Leslie Vogel’s Youth and Community Fiddle Orchestra, the Brattleboro Music Center Senior Orchestra, the Nashua Chamber Orchestra, and the Winsor Music Outreach Project in Boston. She works in a variety of musical fields, including music education, classical chamber music, solo performance, and contracting and organizing music for various events.
Aurora teaches violin lessons in Wilton and has also taught at the Summer Music Workshop at the Williamstown Youth Center. She values the power of music to create communication between people of different backgrounds.
Upcoming presenters include Margaret Hagen from the UNH Extension Service and the WMUR TV spot "Grow it Green," and Paul Monico the author of That Rogue Tourist and the "Paolo & Maria Elena’s Italian Blog".
