Rewoldt and Mei to perform at Fallbrook Library

FALLBROOK – This month's Freaney and Friends free concert on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 1 p.m., will feature saxophonist Todd Rewoldt and pianist Lesi Mei. This program is really wild, new, and eclectic. Those attending will be introduced to some unique piano/sax sounds. They are married and both have performed before at the library but not together.

Recognized for his virtuosity and seductive sound, Todd Rewoldt has established himself as a vital member of the modern music community. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Todd is equally comfortable performing in the styles of classical, modern, electroacoustic and jazz. His hundreds of performances have taken him throughout the United States and to important concert venues in Europe, Asia and Australia.

Dr. Rewoldt regularly performs as a first-call saxophonist with the San Diego Symphony, in duo recitals with his wife Lesi Mei. Mei is a classical pianist. In front of the keys, her background and personality manifest in dazzling virtuosity and stunning musicality.

She was the first call pianist for Beijing International Orchestra before traveling the U.S. from coast to coast, performing in many prestigious festivals such as American Modern Orchestra, La Jolla Symphony, San Diego Winds, and the Hausmann Quartet.

Her performance diploma hails from the European Music Institute in Vienna. Mei holds a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance from San Diego State University, Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from Florida State University and Bachelor of Engineering in Biological Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology, China.
