COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area residents can enjoy the music of Haydn and Mendelssohn Sunday afternoon at Lindsey Wilson College.

The Green River Trio will give a free concert at 2 p.m. CT Sunday, April 6, in W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 155 Blue Raider Drive.

 

The Green River Trio includes LWC Professor of Music Robert Reynolds, piano; LWC Instructor of Music Wansoo Cho, violin; and Saulo DeAlmeida, cello.

Reynolds' association with LWC began in spring 1966. While a sophomore music student at then-Campbellsville (Ky.) College, Reynolds performed as guest artist in the Lindsey Wilson Chapel Series.

He has earned two graduate degrees from Campbellsville (Ky.) University: a master of arts in music in viola/orchestral conducting, and a master of music in church music.

 

Cho has also been the assistant conductor and principal viola player for the University of Louisville Symphony Orchestra. In 2010 he conducted the closing concert for the Kentucky Flute Festival.
