Guest Recital: Elisabeth Adkins, violin & Edward Newman, piano

Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 6:00 pm
Davis Hall, GBPAC
Visiting artists Elisabeth Adkins, violin, and Edward Newman, piano, will present a recital. Adkins’ richly varied musical life makes her equally at home in solo, orchestral, and chamber music repertoire. At the age of 25, she was awarded the position of Associate Concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. by Music Director Mstislav Rostropovich. Over an orchestral career that spans three decades, she has worked closely with the most celebrated conductors, composers and soloists of our time. Adkins will collaborate with pianist Edward Newman, who started his musical career as a child prodigy in Rockville, Maryland, at the age of 5. Over the past 5 decades, Newman has established a standard of excellence that is highly regarded by his peers and the press alike. This event is free and open to the public
