The 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2 performance opens with the extraordinary music of duo Jalal
One of America’s great guitar duos, Michael Newman and Laura Oltman are joined by Avery Fisher violinist laureate Tim Fain for a 3 p.m. concert on Sunday, Feb. 2 at Lafayette College’s Williams Center for the Arts.
The annual Alan and Wendy Pesky Artist-in-Residence concert, the performance features a diverse program of music extending from Vivaldi to Philip Glass. Concert-goers will hear the “Winter” section of the Four Seasons, as well as works by Pablo Sarasate and Manuel de Falla. Fain, who plays the violin music for the original movie soundtrack of “12 Years a Slave,” will also perform solo music composed for him by Glass.
The concert opens with a special guest appearance by violinist Kathryn Lockwood and percussionist Yousif Sheronick of duo Jalal. The duo will perform for the first time “Honey from Alast” by composer Evan Ziporyn. The work was commissioned by Lafayette in honor of the Peskys, who created the college’s artist-in residence program, now in its third decade.
