The Notes in MidWinter concert series continues with works by Johannes Brahms, performed by the trio of Jonathan Yates, piano, Carol McGonnell, clarinet, and Raman Ramarkrishnan, cello. 

Jonathan Yates was recently chosen as the seventh Music Director of the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra in its seventy-two year history.   He has earned high praise as a conductor, solo pianist and collaborative artist for his musicianship, intellect and the remarkable variety of his musical endeavors.

Dublin-born Carol McGonnell has been hailed as "an extraordinary clarinetist" by the New York Times. She is known for the expressive power of her playing of standard repertoire, and also enjoys exploring cutting-edge developments in new music.

A former founding member of the Daedalus Quartet, cellist Raman Ramakrishnan has appeared at Alice Tully Hall, Caramoor’s Rising Stars series, the ­Marlboro Festival, where he was broadcast on NPR’s Performance Today, and at Weill Recital Hall with the contemporary music group, Proteus 5.  He received his BA with honors in physics from Harvard University.
