The program will include a cheerful Mozart violin and cello duet, a contemplative solo Bach on the cello, a thrilling violin solo work by Ysaye, and the highly virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen duet, plus a few extra short pieces for our enjoyment. This concert is generously provided by The Ullendorff Family in loving memory of their beloved parents “Uli” and Regina Ullendorff.
