PORT TOWNSEND — In a “Candlelight Concert” this Thursday, 14-year-old cellist Madelyn Kowalski will join pianist Lisa Lanza for an evening of Beethoven, Davidov and Bach.

This 7 p.m. performance will be Madelyn's third recital with Lanza in the Candlelight series at Trinity United Methodist Church, 609 Taylor St.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Children are invited to attend free, while admission is a suggested $10 donation for adults.

Concert-goers can plan on Beethoven's Sonata for Piano and Cello in G minor, Bach's Cello Suite II and Karl Davidov's short piece “Am Springbrunnen” (“At the Fountain”).

Madelyn began her cello studies at age 7.

After a year of studying with Mia Frederickson in Port Townsend, she began traveling to Bellevue weekly for lessons with her current teacher, Leslie Marck.

In addition to performing at Candlelight Concerts, she has played at several other local events with Lanza, including annual performances at the Ugandan Aids Orphan Benefit Concert since 2009.

Lanza brings to the Olympic Peninsula several decades of experience both as soloist and collaborator.

She holds a master's degree in piano performance from California's University of Redlands and has studied with internationally renowned pianists Maria Joao Pires at Belgais in Portugal and Paul Roberts at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London.

Lanza has worked with opera companies in Eugene, Ore., Orange County, Calif., and Seattle, among others, and performs regularly at the Seattle Art Museum, the Frye Museum and the Seattle Public Library along with accompanying Port Townsend's Rainshadow Chorale and Community Chorus.

Refreshments will be served following the performance.

As always with the monthly concerts, proceeds benefit Port Townsend nonprofit groups and Trinity's music and historic Victorian restoration program.
