Meyer and Marshall will appear at Performing Arts Center on Oct. 13
Two world-class musicians who have been at the vanguard of American instrumental string music will appear together at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Georgia Southern University.
Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall will perform at the PAC on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m.
Meyer is widely regarded as one of the greatest classical bassists to ever pick the instrument, while Marshall is a master of mandolin, guitar and violin whose playing is as imaginative and adventurous as it is technically thrilling.
Tickets for Meyer and Marshall are $30 per person for the general public. Georgia Southern faculty, staff and students will receive a $5 discount for each ticket.
In addition, if any tickets are available 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the performance, any Georgia Southern student with a valid University I.D. can purchase one ticket for $10.
Meyer was a recipient of the McArthur Fellowship Genius Grant in 2002. His recordings with Yo Yo Ma and Mark O’Connor won two Grammy Awards, and his concertos for solo bass and orchestra have set a new standard for bass literature.
Marshall is one of the world’s most accomplished and versatile acoustic musicians. Able to swing gracefully from jazz to classical to bluegrass to Latin, he puts his stamp on everything he plays with an unusually potent blend of emotion and intellect.
Together, Meyer and Marshall present a lighthearted concert of daring music-making with a kind of beauty, variety and range rarely seen or heard.
The PAC is located on the Georgia Southern campus at the corner of Chandler Road and Plant Drive. The box office is open every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The box office is also open one hour prior to the start of each performance.
