March 24, 2014
Music lovers are invited to a spring concert featuring violinist Marta Szlubowska of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra.
The program at Mississippi College’s Clinton campus April 11 will close out the 2013-14 season for the James S. Sclater Chamber Music Series.
Marta serves as the symphony’s concertmistress. She will perform one of Vivaldi’s gems, “Spring” from his Four Seasons. The program begins 7:30 p.m. that Friday evening at the Jean Pittman Williams Recital Hall.
