Music in Landrum presents Michael Drusdow March 25

Published 8:00 am Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Michael Drusdow, 17, a young Steinway artist, will perform at Landrum United Methodist Church, 225 Howard Street (next to Hot Spot) on March 25 at 3 pm. The performance is free.

Some time ago, Drusdow shared a  photo of himself playing Beethoven for his 97 year old grandfather, who was visiting from New Jersey. Michael’s comment, “my grandfather heard Toscanini conduct Beethoven’s 9th, without any score,” prompted Music in Landrum to listen to him play (he plays both piano and violin at a virtuosic level.

The program will open with Drusdow on violin, accompanied by a student of Fabio Parrini’s, Jonah Losh, with Vitale’s Chaconne, and end, 45 minutes later, with a Chopin Ballade. A treat is planned to celebrate three generations of Drusdows-his 97 year old grandfather is traveling from New Jersey to attend his performance.

If you enjoyed hearing Christopher Tavernier during our first two years of free performances, don’t miss this one. For more information, contact Whitney at musicinlandrum@gmail.com.
