The Duke University String School will be having the first of their 4 yearly concerts this weekend. On Saturday, 11 October 2008 in the Baldwin Auditorium in the Biddle Music Building on Duke’s East Campus there will be a concert of the beginner 1 and 2 and intermediate 1 groups at 3pm. Then, at 4pm there will be a Memorial Concert for Wei-Lee Kuo. Finally at 7pm, there will be a concert of the intermediate 2 group and the DUSS Youth Symphony Orchestra.
My son has been taking violin with the string school this fall and will be performing with the beginner 1 group at 3pm. In addition, when my son started, I mentioned to his ensemble’s group instructor, Stephanie Swisher, that I played double bass and asked if she needed any help. While they didn’t need anything with the beginner group, she asked if I’d be willing to help with the intermediate 2 group, so I’ll be playing bass with that group at 7pm.
Anyway, if you’re in Durham tomorrow afternoon and are interested in some classical music, consider stopping by!
Update: When posting late at night, double check all your facts. Baldwin Auditorium, of course, is not in Biddle Music Building. Oh well, here’s hoping I get it right next time. Their next concert will be December 6.
