2017-2018 Mildred McDaniel Concert Series

 

Jokubaviciute-Slack Duo

Sunday March 11, 2018 at 4 p.m.

 

             Upon recent appointments to the Virginia music scene, pianist and Shenandoah Conservatory professor Ieva Jokubaviciute and Richmond Symphony cellist Schuyler Slack joined forces in 2016 to bring world-class chamber music to their new home state.  Between them, these artists have been praised as "excellent," (Washington Post) "an artist of commanding technique, refined temperament and persuasive insight," (The New York Times) and possessing "razor-sharp intelligence and wit." (Washington Post). Jokubaviciute holds degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and from Mannes College of Music. Slack completed his undergraduate studies at Cleveland Institute for Music.  This event is partially supported by funding from the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. The concert is open to the public.  Contributions will be accepted to help support the Concert Series.  A reception follows the concert.
