Athens State University’s 2009/2010 Livingston Concert Lecture Series will kick off its third season this year with a free concert by renowned musicians Tabor and Lopez.
Violinist Alfonso Lopez is one of the most versatile and prominent musicians of his generation in Venezuela. Michelle Tabor, pianist, holds B.F.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in piano and theory from Tulane University, the University of Denver, and Florida State University, respectively.
The concert will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 20 in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church. No reservations are required and the concert is open to the public.
Other performances scheduled for the upcoming academic year include Dulcimer aficionado Don Pedi who will be hosted by the Dulcimer Society, Fiddle Historian Chris Goertzen whose visit will precede the Fiddler’s Convention, a performance of “Trout Fishing in America” by musical comedy duo Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet, southern food expert and national blogger Christy Jordan, acclaimed historian and novelist Dava Sobel, and the world famous pianist Emile Pandolfi will return to Athens State. Other performances and lectures are still on the drawing board but will be announced soon.
