Location: Community Room at Meadowlark

Meadowlark is excited to welcome Madeleine Jansen and Amanda Arrington for a Violin and Piano Recital at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, in the Community Room.

Versatile violinist Madeleine Jansen enjoys a multi-faceted career as a performer, arts advocate, and educator. Jansen recently joined the faculty at Kansas State University, where she teaches violin, viola, and chamber music. Jansen has performed as a soloist with orchestras in Carnegie Hall and has collaborated with many of today’s leading concert artists, including Amit Peled, Elizabeth Pitcairn, and Michelle Cann. Recent performance highlights include performing Ralph Vaughn Williams’ The Lark Ascending with orchestra in Baltimore, a solo recital at the Arts Club of Washington, and a world premiere of an unaccompanied work for violin, which she commissioned from Kurdish-Canadian composer Rizgar Ismael. 

Amanda Arrington has served as Kansas State University’s faculty collaborative pianist since 2010. She maintains an active performing career, working with faculty, guest artists, and students in performances across the country and abroad. An advocate of new music, you can find her premiering works with colleagues and friends at conferences and recording sessions. Her studio albums include “Ruminations” with oboist Alyssa Morris, “Wanderlust: The Flute Music of David Amram” and "String to Silver: Flute Transcriptions of Works in the Romantic Tradition” with flutist Karen Large, and “Anna Marie Wytko, Saxophonist” with saxophonist Anna Marie Wytko.

This is a performance you won’t want to miss! All are welcome to attend.
