The renowned Murray/Lohuis Duo, consisting of violinist Robert Murray and organist Ardyth Lohuis, will perform at Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel Sept. 21 at 4 p.m. The concert, which is free and open to the public, is part of the University’s Malmgren Concert Series. Parking is available in the Irving Garage.
The program will consist of music by J.S. Bach, Jean Langlais, John Weaver, Derek Healey, Hermann Schroder, Artur Kapp, Wilbur Held and Henri Vieuxtemps.
The Murray/Lohuis Duo specializes in the rarely heard international repertory for violin and organ and is featured frequently at festivals and musicians’ conferences throughout the nation. The duo has premiered works by American composers and also given the American premieres of a number of works by 20th century Russian, Polish, Baltic and Eastern European composers. More information on the duo can be found on the Web at www.classicalmusicva.com/mlduo.
The concert is part of the Malmgren Concert Series at Hendricks Chapel. The series was made possible by a generous 1991 gift to Hendricks Chapel from alumna Esther Malmgren ’42. The free Sunday afternoon concerts, held throughout the year, feature a wide variety of music.
