Two award-winning classically trained artists – guitarist Brad Richter and cellist Viktor Uzur - perform a program traditional and contemporary works on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 PM, in the main hall of the Macon County Public Library off Siler Road in Franklin.
This concert features innovative sets of their popular mash-ups, including “Rhapsody In Blue”/”Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and “Sweet Dreams”/“Seven Nation Army,” and much more. Light refreshments will be served; admission is by donation. Richter and Uzur earn rave reviews in solo settings, as a duo, and with ensembles and orchestras in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. The Duo appears frequently on NPR’s “Performance Today,” and has been featured on PBS’s “WoodSongs.” Individually Brad and Vik are classical musicians of the highest calibre.
Richter is a former U.S. National Finger-Picking Champion and has won numerous prizes for performing and composing. Uzur is former principal cellist and soloist with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, and a prizewinner at many competitions.
