Rosenthal, Bergman play Northern Light

JUNEAU - Internationally touring violinist Linda Rosenthal, a University of Alaska Southeast professor and the artistic director for Juneau Jazz & Classics, will play a concert with Seattle pianist Lisa Bergman at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 29, at Northern Light United Church downtown.

The show is sponsored by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council. Tickets are $22 for general admission, $18 for students, $75 for families. They're available at Hearthside Books, Rainy Day Books or at the door for $2 more.

Rosenthal and Bergman have been a duo since 1988. In the past 10 years, Rosenthal has commissioned and premiered over a dozen works featuring the violin. Bergman, the executive director of NOISE (Northwest Opera in Schools, Etc.) and the artistic director for the Mostly Nordic Chamber Music Series in Seattle, plays in more than 60 engagements per season throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.

The show will include pieces by George Frideric Handel, Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, Béla Bartk, George Perlman, William Kroll and William Bolcom. Drummer Clay Good, a Juneau-Douglas High School science teacher, will join Rosenthal and Bergman on "Who Let The Cat Out Last Night," by Paul Schoenfield.
