By on Thu, November 10, 2011

Trio Cabrillo members: Robert Shultz, piano; Charles Calvert, cello; and Bruce Yu, violin

The stellar musicians of the Trio Cabrillo will perform Haydn, Beethoven and Schumann piano trios Sunday, November 13th, at 4:30 p.m. as a benefit for the Coastside Community Orchestra. Proceeds will fund scholarships for music students on the coast.

Charles Calvert, cello, Robert Shultz, piano, and Bruce Yu, violin will play Haydn’s C major trio, Schumann’s Trio No. 3 in G Minor and Beethoven’s “Ghost” Piano Trio in D Major. The Beethoven trio was nicknamed “Ghost” because its eerie second movement was originally written for Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Charles Calvert is principal cellist with the Coastside Community Orchestra and with Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra. He was the youngest member of the Sacramento Symphony when he first played with the group alongside his teacher, August Heilbron.

Robert Schultz played with the San Francisco Symphony under Arthur Fiedler and has also played with the Oakland, Fresno and Peninsula symphonies. He was the featured soloist in the second Saint-Saëns piano concerto with the Coastside Community Orchestra in 2009.

Bruce Yu began studying violin at age five in Chicago and became assistant concertmaster of the Chicago Youth Symphony under Michael Morgan. He won the Student Soloist Award at Stanford and soloed with the Stanford Symphony Orchestra.
