Artist-in-Residence and pianist Clare Longendyke will collaborate with guest musicians Timothy Kantor and Nicholas Mariscal in a free Discovery Music Series concert on Sunday, November 5, at 5 p.m. in the White Chapel.

The second concert of Rose-Hulman’s 2023-24 Discovery Music Series on Sunday, November 5, will feature Artist-in-Residence and pianist Clare Longendyke collaborating with distinguished guests, violinist Timothy Kantor, and cellist Nicholas Mariscal. The performance beginning at 5 p.m. in the school’s White Chapel is free and open to the public.

Kantor has performed on the world’s most prestigious concert stages and has been featured in several chamber music series. As a member of the acclaimed Afiara Quartet, he has performed hundreds of concerts and helped to develop award-winning projects and collaborations. Kantor is the associate professor of violin at the University of Arizona’s Fred Fox School of Music and teaches at the Kinhaven Music School (Vermont) and Programa Gabriel del Orbe (Dominican Republic). 

Mariscal was appointed to the cello section of the prestigious Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra earlier this year. He recently made his professional solo debut with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, has been the assistant principal cellist of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra since 2021, and has been a guest principal cellist with the Trondheim Symphony (Norway). He is an alumnus of the New World Symphony in Miami.

“Timothy and Nicholas have gone on to lead stellar careers since their musical training at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. It is a pleasure to welcome them back to Indiana to share their incredible musicianship with our Discovery Music Series audience,” said Longendyke.
