The Rocky River Chamber Music Society is pleased to usher in spring with an evening of art song and piano with baritone Mario Diaz-Moresco and pianist Spencer Myer on Monday, May 9 at 7:30 p.m. at West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, 20401 Hilliard Blvd. in Rocky River.  The program will feature art songs by Schubert, Poulenc, and Schumann, as well as solo piano works by Ravel and Schumann. 

Mr. Diaz-Moresco is active on both recital and operatic stages and has been garnering praise for his comic flair and resonant baritone.  He has performed across the country, often with pianist Spencer Myer.  He has also appeared in China at the iSING! International Young Artist Festival.  Diaz-Moresco holds music degrees from the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music. 

An enthusiastic supporter of the education of young musicians, Spencer Myer is well known to Northeast Ohio audiences.  He studied at Oberlin College Conservatory and The Juilliard School, and received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stony Brook University in 2005.  He has served on the faculties of conservatories at Baldwin Wallace University and Oberlin College.  Mr. Myer is considered one of the most important American artists of his generation.  In 2016, his latest recording will be released on the Steinway & Sons label. 

As is true of all concerts presented by the Rocky River Chamber Music Society, there is no admission charge and all are welcome.  For further information, please call 440-333-4296.  Visit our website at www.rrcms.org, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
