S.P. Resident Performs in Minnesota
Caroline Cox, of Southern Pines, part of the next generation of classical chamber musicians, will perform in a concert at Landmark Center, 75 W. 5th St., Saint Paul, Minn., on Friday, Sept. 16, at noon.
Two string quartets, consisting of top college music majors who received advanced training at the Madeline Island Music Camp, are featured in the concert. Cox, violin, will play Ravel's "String Quartet in F Major" with Madlen Breckbill, violin; Elizabeth Myhre, viola; and Janet Park, cello. A second quartet will perform Beethoven's "String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 74 Harp."
Cox started her violin studies at the age of 4. She is currently enrolled at East Carolina University as a double major in violin and piano performance. She was selected to perform in the ECU Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival: Next Generation Series several times, where she has had the opportunity to perform with Robert McDonald and Michael Cannon.
Cox has served as concertmaster of the East Carolina University Symphony Orchestra for three years and won the ECU concerto competition during her first year. In her junior year, she won the Durham Symphony Orchestra and Raleigh Symphony Orchestra concerto competitions and as a result of this, performed the first movement of the Sibelius "Violin Concerto in D minor" as soloist with both orchestras.
The free concert is presented by the Madeline Island Music Camp, and hosted by the Landmark Center with promotional assistance from the Schubert Club.
