LEWISBURG, Pa. — Three young musicians — Nicolas Kendall, Zachary DePue and Ranaan Meyer — will return to Lewisburg for a concert in the Weis Center Friday, Oct. 15, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
Kendall won the 2002 Pennsylvania Prize with the Janet Weis Award of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, which earned him a performance on the Weis Center Series two years ago.
"He brought along two of his friends, both fellow graduates of the Curtis Institute for Music, to give a special performance on campus," said Bill Boswell, executive director of the Weis Center.
"So many people told me that we had to bring them back to share them with a larger audience on the series, so this is a true back-by-popular-demand event because, solo and together, these three musicians wowed everyone who heard them," he said.
The program will feature an eclectic offering that will include some Hungarian and Spanish gypsy music, jazz, country-western fiddling, classics, and some improvisation.
"Look for a dynamite `Orange Blossom Special' and the familiar `Ashokan Farewell,' for all the fans of Ken Burns' acclaimed Civil War Series on PBS," said Boswell.
Tickets are available in person from the Campus Box Office in the Weis Center weekdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and one hour prior to events. Tickets also are available by calling 570-577-1000 or online at http://www.bucknell.edu/boxoffice/
The musicians will present "Time for Kids with Time for Three" Saturday, Oct. 16, at 11 a.m. in the Weis Center. Through the generosity of Clayton and David Lightman, and members of the Weis Center Green Room Board, this special concert for families is free to the community (no tickets required.)
The 2004-05 season of Weis Center events is made possible in part by generous funding from the Bucknell University Association for the Arts and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support for the series is provided by numerous and generous private donors including members of the Weis Center Green Room Circle and Green Room Board.
