Maria Sampen and Timothy Christie return to Old Town with an evening of violin music – solo, duo, and larger ensemble. This concert features a string group newly-formed and led by Maria at University of Puget Sound called the Puget Sound Virtuoso Strings, comprised of talented 7th-12th grade violinists from the Puget Sound area. This group will play selections for violin ensemble including a piece by Polish female composer Grażyna Bacewicz, and Maria will join them for a performance of Astor Piazzola’s “Winter” from his Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Timothy and Maria will each perform solo violin repertoire featuring works by J.S. Bach, Niccolo Paganini, and Eugène Ysaÿe.
