ESCANABA — Strings on the Bay at Bay College continues with its second of three concerts at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 18th, at the Besse Center Theater at Bay College.

Joining Paul Lundin, violinist, and director of the concert series, will be two familiar faces to the Besse stage. Violinist Daniel Foster and pianist Garik Pedersen are both professors of music at Eastern Michigan University and have appeared several times on the Strings on the Bay series.

In addition to over twenty years of service to EMU, Pedersen, a Steinway artist, has performed as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and in Europe, Canada, Central America, Taiwan and the Philippine Islands. Recent appearances have included Steinway Hall (New York City, 2008).

Daniel Foster has taught violin at Eastern Michigan University since 1987. A student of Paul Rolland at the University of Illinois and of Angel Reyes at the University of Michigan, he holds degrees in violin performance from both schools.

Since 1978, he has appeared frequently throughout the United States as a solo and chamber artist, with repertoire ranging from the seventeenth through the twentieth century. As a baroque violinist, he has performed and recorded with Ars Music Baroque Orchestra, Smithsonian Chamber Players, Oriana, and Tafelmusik.

This program is entitled “Violin Duel – the Rematch” and features music for two violins and piano. Lundin and Professor Foster will “duel” over music by Handel, Telemann, Moszkowski, Shostakovich and Sarasate. Three years ago they dueled to a draw over music for just two violins at the Besse Theater. 

Tickets for this performance are available on the Bay College website, at the box office, or at the door. The admission price is $5 for students and faculty and $10 general admission.

The last program of the series will be held on Tuesday, August 8th.
