Concert by long-time pals

January 07, 1994|By SYLVIA BADGER

Two renowned pianists, Ceilito Elliott and Reynaldo Reyes, will be performing at St. Paul's Schools' Ward Center for the Arts this evening. Mrs. Elliott and Mr. Reyes have been friends since their teen-age years, when they attended the Manila Conservatory in the Philippines.

Mr. Reyes, an award-winning musician, is professor of music and piano at Towson State University. Mrs. Elliott came to Garrison Forest School in 1966 as the head of the music department and a piano teacher. She's had little time for concerts in the last decade because of her duties at the school.

This evening's concert should be a real treat for those who enjoy Rachmaninoff, Bach/Busoni, Schumann and Gershwin. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Although the concert doesn't begin until 8 p.m., the doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for an art exhibit by two St. Paul's alums, Reinaldo Fernandez and DeVere Beard. Both are grads of the class of '88. Mr. Fernandez will show his paintings, and Mr. Beard, an assemblage of mixed-media works. The show is in the Octagon and is free to the public.

Many exciting events are planned for the Maryland Historical Society's 150th anniversary. The first is a reception at the museum Thursday evening to kick off a gala yearlong celebration.

Guest of honor and featured speaker at Thursday's party will be Jane Alexander, chairwoman of the National Endowment for the Arts. She'll join Mayor Kurt Schmoke in a salute to State Comptroller Louis Goldstein for his loyal and dedicated support of the historical society.

This will be her first Maryland appearance since President Bill Clinton appointed her last August.
