Three Milton cello students will perform a year-end recital, along with four other cellists, Saturday, June 13, at 3 p.m. in the First Parish Church, 535 Canton Ave. The concert is open to the public.
Elizabeth Mahon, Jake Martens and Jeremie Carpenter are all students of Jeremy Harman, who now resides in Quincy but has taught students in the Milton Public Schools for many years. Harman will also play at the recital.
Martens and Carpenter are both rising sophomores at Milton High School.
Mahon is a rising senior at Harvard College, first picking up the cello at Collicot Elementary School, and playing through Pierce Middle and Milton High schools. The Times interviewed Mahon before a concert at the Milton Public Library [“Meet Elizabeth Mahon,” April 30]. Her mother, Hilda Mahon, is an administrative assistant at the library.
This is the second of two recitals at First Parish.
Mahon described the value of recitals in an email to the Times: “Recitals are a way to inspire music students to get better, because they will be performing in front of friends and family.”
