Robert McDuffie, violin
Robert Spano, piano

Enjoy a duo recital from two stellar artists who have become Athens favorites! Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie has appeared as soloist with the world’s foremost orchestras on five continents. His last appearance in Hodgson Hall was with R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, who composed the Concerto for Violin, Rock Band, and String Orchestra specifically for him. He is joined by pianist Robert Spano, music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and a highly imaginative conductor whose distinctive artistry has created a sense of inclusion and warmth among musicians and audiences that is unique among American orchestras.
