Second chamber concert July 16

MANISTIQUE – The Community Concert Committee’s summer chamber music series continues July 16. The concert is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. inside the Church of the Redeemer Presbyterian in Manistique.

Joining Paul Lundin, violinist and director of the concert series, will be two familiar faces to the Manistique audience. Violinist Daniel Foster and pianist Garik Pedersen are both professors of music at Eastern Michigan University and have appeared several times on the Community Concert series.

In addition to over 20 years of service to EMU, Pedersen, a Steinway artist, has performed as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and in Europe, Canada, Central America, Taiwan and the Philippine Islands. Recent appearances have included Steinway Hall (New York City, 2008).

Daniel Foster has taught violin at Eastern Michigan University since 1987. A student of Paul Rolland at the University of Illinois and of Angel Reyes at the University of Michigan, he holds degrees in violin performance from both schools. Since 1978, he has appeared frequently throughout the United States as a solo and chamber artist, with repertoire ranging from the seventeenth through the twentieth century. As a baroque violinist, he has performed and recorded with Ars Music Baroque Orchestra, Smithsonian Chamber Players, Oriana, and Tafelmusik.

This program is entitled “Violin Duel – the Rematch” featuring music for two violins and piano. Lundin and Professor Foster will “duel” over music by Handel, Telemann, Moszkowski, Shostakovich and Sarasate. Three years ago they dueled to a draw over music for just two violins at the Church of the Redeemer. This year they are joined by a pianist (and referee).

The concert will include an art show during intermission. Reception with light refreshments follows the concert. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door before the performance. Those under the age of 18 will be admitted free.

One remaining concert in the series will be on August 6.
