Two award-winning, classically trained artists – guitarist Brad Richter and cellist Viktor Uzur - perform traditional and contemporary works on Sunday, October 30, at 3:00 p.m., in the main hall of the Macon County Public Library off Siler Road in Franklin.

The Arizona Daily Star describes the duo’s original music as “straddling the divide of pop and classical music in a way that seems so natural, you wonder why someone had never thought of it before.” Sunday’s program will feature a set of their popular mash-ups and an exciting arrangement of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” among others. Light refreshments will be served; admission is by donation.



The Western Carolina University Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Mario Gaetano, will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the recital hall of Coulter Building. The concert is free and open to the public.
