The concert will include Aria by JS Bach, Sonata in G minor by G.F. Handel, and Sonata, Opus 6 by Samuel Barber. The second half includes Etude-Tableau, No. 8, Opus 33 by Sergei Rachmaninoff for solo piano, followed by Sonata in A minor, Opus 36 by Edvard Grieg. The concert concludes with Dreaming from Opus 15 by American composer Amy Beach.

The Schmid Snyder duo appeared on the Library inaugural series last year performing to a full house. Pianist Angeline Schmid is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., and the University of Colorado. She was a faculty member at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania. Many of her students are professors throughout the country including San Diego, Boston, Washington, D.C., and at the Cincinnati Conservatory. As a recitalist and collaborative pianist, Schmid has performed in Pennsylvania and New England.

Cellist Noel Snyder is a graduate of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where he studied with Leonard Rose and Orlando Cole. He also attended Swarthmore College and Cornell University where he obtained his PhD in evolutionary biology. Recently he has authored two books, “The Carolina Parakeet” and “Introduction to the California Condor.” As a cellist, Snyder was a charter member of the Bay Festival String Quartet in Rockport, Maine, and throughout the years he has performed solo concerts throughout the states including many performances with Schmid.
