COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area residents have an opportunity to enjoy "a spectacular" concert Friday night when the Virtuoso Horn Duo and Friends' American Tour 2009 makes a stop at Lindsey Wilson College.
 
The concert will feature works by Kerry Turner, Robert Schumann, John Williams, Billy Strayhorn, and Jerome Kern 
The concert -- which is part of the 2009-10 Lindsey Wilson Cultural Affairs Series -- will be 7 p.m. CT Friday, Oct. 23, in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall. It is free and open to the public.
 
"This should be a spectacular performance, and we are fortunate to have musicians of this caliber in Southcentral Kentucky," said Cultural Affairs Chair Phil Hanna. "Lindsey Wilson is pleased we can provide this quality of music to the community -- and at no charge."
 
The Virtuoso Horn Duo and Friends features Kerry Turner and Kristina Mascher on horns, Kyle Turner on tuba and Lauretta Bloomer on piano.
 
The Virtuoso Horn Duo offers a program of highly melodic, sometimes traditional and often technically dazzling horn playing, combined with world-class artistry and execution.
 
Turner and Mascher began performing as the Virtuoso Horn Duo in 2002. The two highly accomplished horn players began studying, perfecting and performing the existing repertoire for two horns.
 
After receiving critical acclaim for their performance at the 2002 Luxembourg Exhibition, Kristina and Kerry toured Europe for several years. The VHD has also performed in the Southwestern United States and presented concerts and master classes in the Eastern United States.

Virtuoso Horn Duo and Friends will perform 7 p.m. CT Friday, Oct. 23, in the Lindsey Wilson College W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Cultural Affairs Chair Phil Hanna at hannap@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8250.
