LA CROSSE, Wis. – Take a musical journey down a winding path on the backroads and byways of American music with Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio and their unique blend of Scottish and Appalachian sounds at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 6 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

The Mark O’Connor Appalachia Waltz Trio, consisting of violinist Mark O’Connor, violist Carol Cook, and cellist Natalie Haas, mixes the melodic heritage of bluegrass, Celtic folk music, American songs, and chamber music.

Mark O’Connor is widely recognized as one of the most gifted contemporary composers in America and one of the brightest talents of his generation. He has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, Great Performances on PBS, and Kennedy Center Honors. He also regularly teaches master classes and has conducted symposia at many schools including the Juilliard School of Music.

This performance is co-sponsored by James G. Birnbaum, Attorney at Law, and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $23 for upper balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100
