The Robert McDuffie Center for Strings is presenting “A Little Romance,” the first Fabian Concert Series performance of 2016, on Feb. 2.
The concert will feature violinist Donald Weilerstein of the Cleveland Quartet, his wife Vivian Hornik Weilerstein on piano, violist Hsin-Yun Huang and Amy Schwartz Moretti, the director of the McDuffie Center for Strings.
“This concert features two of my teachers from my college days,” Moretti said. “The Weilersteins represent all that is great about music. They are profound musicians, wonderful teachers and amazing people who have hugely impacted the music world.”
Violist Hsin-Yun Huang is returning to the Fickling stage to join the Weilersteins for the night of romantic music.
Feb. 2 won’t be the first time these musicians have performed together. The Weilersteins, joined by their daughter Alisa Weilerstein, performed with Huang in a December concert at Juilliard.
The visiting musicians will be sharing their expertise with Mercer both on and off the stage.
“All three of these artists will be leading master classes for Mercer’s Center students, as well as giving inspiration through their playing in the concert,” Moretti said.
Moretti will be accompanying the three musicians on the violin.
The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. in Fickling Hall. Tickets cost $12 for adults but are free for students with a Mercer ID. Call (478) 301-5470 for tickets or purchase at the door. For more information, call (478) 301-2886.
After the Feb. 2 concert, there is only one more Fabian Concert Series performance in the 2015-2016 academic year. That concert, featuring the Cortona Trio, will take place March 22.
