Morningside College’s string instructor, Dr. Dan Auerbach, will be giving a violin recital on Friday, Oct. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Ave. This is a free event open to the public.
Auerbach has been described by the New York Times as a player “with quiet virtuosity.” He will be performing works including Tartini’s “Devil’s Trill,” Sinding’s “Suite” and Paganini’s “Caprice #14.” Michele Grossman will accompany him on the piano.
Auerbach earned his doctorate in music from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. He also holds Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees from the Juilliard School in New York.
Auerbach is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including a graduate fellowship from Rutgers University and the Irene Alm Memorial Prize for excellence in performance and scholarly research. He has performed as a soloist in such venues as Alice Tully Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Juilliard Theater. As a chamber musician he has enjoyed collaborating with the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra in New Jersey, Moscow Chamber Orchestra, West-End Players of the Dallas Symphony, Columbia University's Collegium Musicum, and the Jose Limon Dance Company in New York.
In addition to teaching at Morningside, Auerbach also serves as assistant concertmaster of the Sioux City Symphony.
