ACTU to present flute and guitar duo on Friday
Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU) will present the AronBerkner Duo featuring guitarist Stephen Aron and flutist Jane Berkner on Friday, Feb. 21, as part of the Fridays at Noon series in the chapel of the Thomasville First United Methodist Church, located at 425 N. Broad St. in Thomasville.
Stephen Aron is Professor of Music and Chairman of Guitar Studies at the University of Akron and the founder of the classical guitar studies program at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Jane Bernkner is the Interim Flute Professor at the University of Akron and has been on the Ohio Touring Artists Roster since 1992.
“We are very fortunate to have these two artists as they tour the Southeast,” said Karl Barton, series coordinator. “They will be coming from Tennessee.”
Friday’s program will include works for flute and guitar by Blavet, Lezcano, Farr and Iznaola, a number of them arranged by Stephen Aron.
"These concerts are my very favorite because of the perspective you get in an intimate space like the chapel,” Barton continued. “If you have time, I can't think of a better lunch break.”
The concert is free and open to the public. A complimentary luncheon provided by the church will follow the performance. For additional information, visit thomasu.edu/actu or call (229) 227-6964.
