— James Emery, the three-time NYFA Fellow, will play in concert with the ensemble that he co-founded, the String Trio of New York on Friday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m.

The performance will take place in the Grand Hall of Morrison Hall Mansion on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange.

This event is another in the series on both campuses recognizing New York Foundation of the Arts 30 years of honoring artists.

The String Trio of New York is the main vehicle through which Emery plays his compositions for which he was awarded New York Foundation of the Arts grants and fellowships.

'Staggering technical virtuosity'Emery plays his handcrafted guitar eloquently and with “staggering technical virtuosity,” as quoted in All About Jazz. He has been acclaimed as "one of the world’s finest guitarists as (he) possesses an encyclopedic jazz vocabulary as a technician and composer.”

In addition, Emery has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Cary Trust.

As a composer, he writes pieces for chamber groups, jazz ensembles, solo guitar, chamber orchestra, and symphony orchestra. In addition to working with many private students, Emery, a resident of Warwick, is an adjunct who teaches the jazz ensemble at SUNY Orange.

On violinViolinist Rob Thomas, who is a Berklee College of Music professor, is a highly regarded jazz multi-instrumentalist, fluent on violin, cello and bass. He has held the violin chair of the String Trio of New York since 2001.

JazzTimes calls him “a violinist of exceptional creative resources... riveting as a solo voice with a rich complex tone.”

And on bassBassist Tony Marino tours internationally with the Dave Liebman Big Band. His versatility and wide range of musicality has afforded him opportunities to accompany and record with numerous artists from folk to pop. He is a gifted player who plays both acoustic and electric bass.

Essential informationTickets will be available at the door only the evening of the performance. The Box Office table and exterior doors open at 6:45 p.m. Admission: $15 adults; $10 senior citizens, faculty, staff, alumni; free for all students.

Morrison Hall Mansion is located at 115 South St. on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange.

Free parking is available across the street.
