NVCM presents Marc Teicholz and Ian Swensen
On January 13, 2013 Marc Teicholz, guitar and Ian Swensen, violin will team up to perform for the NVCM series.
Please note that this is a programmatic change. Due to an injury, cellist Tanya Tomkins is regrettably unable to perform with Marc Teicholz as planned. However, we are delighted to have award-winning violinist Ian Swensen step in to join Marc in an equally exciting concert. Their program will feature the music of Bartok, Assad, and Giuliani.
Doors open at 3:30pm.
Tickets are $25/$20 at the door and $22.50/$18 in advance.
