Doan Brook Trio Performs “My Family Immigration Story” Concert
Doan Brook Trio is a woodwind ensemble featuring oboist Martin Neubert, clarinetist Alix Reinhardt, and bassoonist Ian Hoy. Taking its name from Doan Brook, one of the five greater bluestone brooks found in Cuyahoga County, the trio was founded in 2018 by Ian Hoy. The trio’s mission is to raise awareness of social justice issues through enriching programs which are fact-based and which have a personal connection.
The Doan Brook Trio brings a special concert entitled “My Family Immigration Story” to the Lakewood Main Library on Sunday, July 14, 2019. The inspiration for Sunday’s performance stems from Hoy’s own family immigration story. A family letter was sent to France from New York on the occasion of the inauguration of the Statue of Liberty in 1886.
Ian Hoy is adjunct bassoon professor at Ashland University. Alix Reinhardt is a member of the adjunct faculty at the University of Akron and is a regular performer with the Akron, Canton, Youngstown and Wheeling Symphony Orchestras. Martin Neubert is principal oboist for BlueWater Chamber Orchestra and is second oboist for Cleveland Pops Orchestra.
The trio’s concert takes place on Sunday, July 14, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium and will feature classical, romantic, and modern French works. Admission is free and open to all ages.
