In celebration of the 80th birthday of renowned composer and Distinguished Professor John Corigliano, Lehman College of The City University of New York will host a special concert that will include three acclaimed guest artists: violinist Lara St. John and pianists Martin Kennedy and Stephen Gosling. The concert is open to the public and will serve as a fundraiser for the John Corigliano Scholarship Fund. The three musicians will be performing works for violin and piano, including a work for two pianos tuned a ¼ tone apart.

One of six Distinguished Professors at Lehman College, John Corigliano is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music (2001), five Grammy Awards and an Academy Award (2000). Among his most many notable compositions are Symphony No. 1 (1988); Symphony No. 2 for string orchestra (2000); Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of
Bob Dylan; the score for François Girard’s film The Red Violin (1998); and an opera entitled The Ghosts of Versailles (1991), the recording of which earned Corigliano another Grammy Award last year (in the Best Classical Recording category.)
