Richter-Uzur Duo perform Feb. 13 in Jackson

Center for the Arts Theater in Jackson presents a warm and fun Valentine's Day concert on Sunday, Feb. 13, 7 p.m. Cellist Viktor Uzur and guitarist Brad Richter are classical musicians of the highest caliber, with successful international solo careers and intensive training from two of the world’s most lauded musical institutions: The Moscow Conservatory and The Royal College of Music respectively. Their musical interests and abilities, however, run the gamut from Albeniz to Led Zeppelin.

The Richter Uzur Duo may be unique in the way they combine classical, rock and folk music and themes into truly original new compositions as well as in the way in which they collaborate. The fun and friendship Viktor and Brad share in this partnership are obvious on stage and in their music.

Reserved seats for the concert are $20.

Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
