The Grand Valley Artist-Faculty Series kicks off with a recital by cellist Pablo Mahave-Veglia, associate professor of music, Friday, September 7, 8-9:30 p.m., Sherman Van Solkema Recital Hall, Performing Arts Center, Allendale Campus.
Mahave-Veglia’s repertoire ranges from the early baroque, performed on period instruments, to his ongoing interest in researching, performing and recording the work of contemporary Latin-American composers. He performs on a baroque cello made by Chilean Luthier Marcelo Cigna in 1986. His modern instrument is a 1790 William Forster on loan to him by an anonymous private collector.
The series continues with Gregory Crowell, affiliate professor of music, who will present a solo harpsichord recital Monday, September 17, from 6-7 p.m., GVSU Art Gallery, PAC.
