LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Weis Center at Bucknell University will present a special concert for families Saturday, Oct. 16, at 11 a.m.
"Time for Kids with Time for Three" features three young musicians performing a program which they refer to as "Music is a Universal Language."
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 and seating is not reserved.)
Violinist Nicolas 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.
Kendall will perform with Zachary DePue, violin, and Ranaan Meyer, doublebass, in a back-by-popular-demand appearance, according to Bill Boswell, executive director of the Weis Center.
"Two years ago, these young musicians wowed everyone who heard them. This Saturday morning performance will allow a younger audience to appreciate their talent," he said.
The trio also will perform on Friday, Oct. 15, at 8 p.m. in the Weis Center Series. Tickets for the Friday night performance are $15.
Tickets for events in the Weis Center Series 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 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.
