The University of Alaska Southeast’s Sound and Motion lecture series will conclude this Friday with “Linda’s Favorites,” featuring premier violinist Linda Rosenthal.
Rosenthal and pianist Sue Kazama will perform some of Rosenthal’s personal favorite pieces.
Rosenthal and her husband, virtuoso violinist Paul Rosenthal have lived in Juneau since 1974, and in Alaska since 1969. In addition to teaching and performing both locally and around the world, Linda Rosenthal founded the Juneau Jazz & Classics festival, celebrating its 25th year this spring. The nationally recognized festival offers audiences formal and informal concerts and workshops in jazz, blues and classical styles, and features world-class artists from around the country. This year’s festival has been extended in celebration of its 25th anniversary; it will run from May 6 through 21. To find out more, visit www.jazzandclassics.org.
