UMaine School of Performing Arts Presents the Silver Duo with Guest Violinist Lydia Forbes

The University of Maine School of Performing Arts will present the Silver Duo in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, in Minsky Recital Hall on campus.

The Silver Duo — UMaine faculty members pianist Phillip and cellist Noreen Silver — will perform with special guest violinist Lydia Forbes. The program will include works for cello and piano by Debussy and Berwald, and the Trio in B flat Op. 21 by Antonin Dvorak.

The Silver Duo has performed throughout Europe, Israel, the United States and Scandinavia. Their imaginative programming, in which lesser-known masterpieces are given exposure alongside established repertoire favorites, has proven very popular and made them much in demand.

Lydia Forbes, a member of the DaPonte String Quartet, is an internationally renowned soloist and chamber music performer. She has performed throughout Europe and recorded with some of the world’s most prominent classical labels: Sony Classical, CNM and Harmonia Mundi.

Admission is $9; free for students with a MaineCard. For tickets or disability accommodations, call the Collins Center for the Arts, 207.581.1755.

The performance is supported in part by a grant from the UMaine Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series.
