Bringing classical and Latin music together in concert, the Lopez Tabor Duo will perform at Dalton State College Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 7:30.

The duo is comprised of Alfonso Lopez and Michelle Tabor, two versatile musicians who have performed together in the U.S. and Venezuela for over a decade.

Lopez, a violinist, is the concert master of the Venezuela Symphony Orchestra, which, as the national symphony, is the oldest and the principal orchestra of the country.

Tabor, a pianist, holds a bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degree in piano and music theory from Tulane University, the University of Denver, and Florida State University, respectively.

In the first part of the two-part program separated by an intermission, the Lopez Tabor duo will perform three pieces from the traditional violin/piano repertoire, including two pieces by Beethoven and one by Saint-Saens.

The second part will be devoted to music from the Hispanic world, including a Spanish sonata, two short pieces based on Spanish folk music, a tango, and two lively, rhythmic South American folk dances.

This program is free and open to the public in the Goodroe Auditorium of Gignilliat Memorial Hall at Dalton State. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
