Violinist to cap visit with Oct. 4 concert

Bella Hristova

Award-winning violinist Bella Hristova will perform live on Thursday, Oct. 4, at Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall in the Music Building (7:30 p.m.). She also is working with area schools and organizations as part of the Iowa State Center's young concert artist residency (Oct. 1-4).  Among Hristova's many awards and honors is a first-place finish at the 2008-09 Young Concert Artists International auditions and a career grant from the Salon de Virtuosi, New York. The Bulgarian native tours extensively, performing as a solo artist and appearing with orchestras.

Tickets, $15 ($5 for students and youth), include a reception with Hristova following the performance. Tickets are available at the Iowa State Center ticket office and online through Ticketmaster. Contributed photo.
