Award-winning classical music students from high school and college programs will share their talents in a concert at the Bay Street Theatre on Sunday to benefit the Katy’s Courage Fund.
This is the sixth year that young local musicians have joined together to celebrate Katy Stewart of Sag Harbor, who died at the age of 12 of a rare form of liver cancer, and to raise money for the nonprofit established in her memory to support scholarships, counseling, and pediatric cancer research.
Ten musicians will perform — seven from local high schools and three from the South Fork who are studying music at the college level. Ellen Johansen and Alvin Novak, local professional musicians, will accompany them.
Participating from East Hampton High School will be Leo Panish on violin and Georgia Bennett, a singer. Tristan Griffin, a Ross School eighth grader, will play piano. Joining them will be Emmanuelle Bernard and Christopher Ritter from Pierson High School on piano and, from Southampton High School, Benjamin Pereira on violin and Kivlan King on cello.
Matthew Maimone, who is studying piano at the Juilliard School, Maxfield Panish, a violin student at the Manhattan School of Music, and Christopher Beroes-Haigis, who studies cello at Bard College, will also perform.
The concert starts at 4 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10 for tickets.
