SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Music Department will host their first Artist Series lecture and concert of the school year next week. Events are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 25-26.  The world-renowned Cavatino Duo will perform, featuring the music of Eugenia Moliner, flutist, and Denis Azabagic, guitarist.

Schedule of events for the Cavatino Duo:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 25, 10-10:50 a.m.

Barnett Recital Hall — The duo will hold a master class for flute and guitar.

  • Thursday, Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m.

Barnett Recital Hall — The duo will perform in concert.

Both events are free and open to the public. The Barnett Recital Hall is located on the first floor of the Barnett Fine Arts Center. Visitors can enter through the doors south of the chapel facing Glenstone Avenue.

“The central purpose of Evangel’s Artist Series is to provide opportunities for students, faculty and staff to experience and enjoy the arts,” said Linda Ligate, professor of music.

“Skilled and innovative musicians, such as the Cavatino Duo, introduce their audience to compositions, composers, musical styles and performance practices from a variety of historical periods and cultures. They also model disciplines and musicianship that potentially inspire students.”

“We have a number of excellent flute music education and performance students in the department, so this performance will be particularly appealing to them,” Ligate said. “The Cavatino Duo collaborates and brings solo repertoire and unique ensemble arrangements for both flute and guitar.”

About the Cavatino Duo

The Cavatino Duo has performed in multiple locations around the world, including The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., The Chicago Symphony Center and The National Centre for Performing Arts in Beijing, China.

Moliner’s and Azabagic’s performances also have been broadcasted on television and radio in Europe and North America, and the duo has been interviewed in international magazines such as Chamber Music America and Soundboard, among others.

The Cavatino Duo has recorded five albums for the Spanish and North American labels Opera Tres, Cedille, Bridge and Orobroy Records.
