The Delaware County Symphony presents the second of its Chamber Concert Series for the 2013-2014 season on Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013 at 3pm in the Meagher Theatre of the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center at Neumann University, Aston Pa. The concert, with violinist Nina Vieru, features a recital of inspiring violin music including Violin Sonata No. 2 in F Minor by George Enescu; Violin Concerto in D Major (First Movement) by Peter Tchaikovsky; Polonaise in D Major by Henryk Wieniawski, and Carmen Fantasy by Pablo De Sarasate. Nina Vieru will be accompanied by Ana Vieru at the piano.
Nina has performed on many of the most prominent stages in Romania. She performs on an original Nicolo Gagliano (1749-1780) violin given to her by a noted California-based music foundation in recognition of her outstanding musicianship. The Gagliano family of violins are sought after for their distinctive warm and vibrant sound. She was guest soloist with the Galati Philharmonic Orchestra, the Brasov Philharmonic Orchestra, and has twice appeared in concert at the George Enescu Festival in Bucharest. Nina has successfully participated in more than 35 national and international violin competitions. In 2011 she won the Temple University Concerto Competition and the LISMA Foundation International Music Competition (New York City).
Nina was born in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, to a family of musicians. At the age of 7, she began her study of the violin at the Music High School in Chisinau. Six years later, her family moved to Bucharest, Romania’s capital, where she studied with noted violinist Stefan Gheorghiu. After graduation in 2007, Vieru moved to the United States and studied violin with Edouard Schmieder at Temple University.
The Meagher Theatre is handicapped accessible and there is ample free parking adjacent to the theatre. Tickets are $12, $10 for seniors/students and free for children 12 and under with paying adult admission. A special ticket price of $8 applies to groups of 10 or more.
