WILMINGTON — The Price Hill neighborhood in Cincinnati is known as one of the nation’s most eclectic and its musical namesake,
The Price Hill Duo, plans on presenting a lunchtime concert worthy of its moniker March 6 at Wilmington College.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in the McCoy Room of Kelly Center. Tables and chairs will be set up to accommodate those who wish to bring their lunch.
The Price Hill Duo features Laura Jekel on cello and violinist Jordana Greenberg performing a repertoire comprised largely of Jekel’s original arrangements from a variety of classical composers
. Their performance style has been described as “passionate, distinct and progressive.”
Greenberg is a musician in multiple genres who has performed on five continents as a violinist and singer. She is a songwriter and founder of the internationally touring chamber folk trio, Harpeth Rising. Midwest Record writes, “Jordana Greenberg must be some wild kind of old soul because this is something special…the next dimension, taking back lyric writing as an art form.”
Greenberg studied at both Indiana University and New England Conservatory in Boston. She is a violin teaching artist with MYCincinnati, a free youth orchestra program in Price Hill.
The cellist, Jekel, is the director of Price Hill Will’s creative placemaking program. She also is the founder and former director of MYCincinnati. Originally from Boston, she studied at Indiana University and Carnegie Mellon before leaving to teach and perform throughout South America. She freelances in the Cincinnati area, playing with such regional orchestras as the Dayton Philharmonic, Queen City Opera and the Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra.
