Classical | RIT Performing Artists Concert Series 

Two hands. Four pianos. This lead-in of double keyboards means double excitement when pianists Benjamin Hopkins and Christopher Goodpasture take the stage at RIT. Hopkins won first prize in the Rio Hondo Symphony Young Artist Competition. In 2008, Hopkins won awards from the Rochester Philharmonic League and debuted with the RPO. In 2011, Goodpasture won first prize and the public prize at the International Klaviersommer Competition (Germany). Two major works on the program are Mozart's "Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, K. 448" and Saint-Saëns' "The Carnival of the Animals." A cameo appearance in Carnival will be made by RPO principal cellist Stefan Reuss. Narrating Carnival will be Thomas Paul.

The RIT Performing Artists Concert Series with pianists Benjamin Hopkins and Christopher Goodpasture will be held Friday, November 15, 8 p.m. at Ingle Auditorium at RIT, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive. $5-$20.
