The Majore Trio Returns to LVC for February 24 Concert
02.20.13 |
Central Pennsylvania music professors Rebecca Butler Marie-Aline Cadieux, and Johannes Dietrich will perform as the Majore Trio on February 24 at 3 p.m. in the Zimmerman Recital Hall of Lebanon Valley College's Suzanne H. Arnold Gallery. The concert is free and open to the public.

The trio includes Butler, a music professor at Albright College, on piano; Cadieux, a music professor at Kutztown University and adjunct cello professor at LVC, on cello; and Dietrich, the Newton and Adelaide Burgner Professor of Instrumental Music at LVC, on violin.

The program will feature "Trio No. 1 in F Major" by Camille Saint-Seans and the "Trio No. 4 in B flat Major" by Ludwig van Beethoven. The Beethoven trio includes a set of variations on the tune, "Before I begin work, I must have something to eat" from J. Weigle's opera, "Sailor's Loves." As the performance comes to an end, the Majore Trio will play from Paul Schoenfield's "Café Music" and Fritz Kreisler's "Miniature Viennese March."

A native of Montana, Dietrich joined LVC's faculty in 1995. He directs the LVC Symphony Orchestra, teaches conducting and string methods and applied violin and viola, and conducts chamber music ensembles. Dietrich is also active in clinics and was recently awarded the Orchestra Director of the Year award from the Pennsylvania/Delaware String Teachers Association. He studied at Montana State University and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. Dietrich has a master's in violin performance and a doctorate in violin and performance and conducting from the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati. Dietrich is a founding member of the Majore Trio but also performs solo violin recitals and remains an active ragtime pianist.

Cadieux has performed across Europe but moved to the area in 1999. She has won numerous teaching awards and her former students have gone on to lead college music programs and conservatories across the country. Cadieux frequently teaches clinics and master classes for music educators and students and served as the principal cellist for many accomplished orchestras. She received her master's degree and graduate certificate in performance from Northwestern University and earned her doctorate at Ohio State.

Butler has been a member of the Albright College faculty for nearly three decades, where she directs the symphonic band, teaches general music classes for non-music majors, and teaches music history and theory. She is co-chair of the music department, symphonic band director, teaches lessons on both the flute and piano, organizes and coaches small wind and string ensembles, and coordinates adjunct instructors for music and classroom instruction. Butler earned her bachelor's degree in music education and piano performance at the Oberlin Conservatory and went on to earn a master's degree in accompanying and chamber music at Temple University. Butler is an active freelance accompanist and chamber musician.
