Romanian Studies benefit concert

Submitted by Susanna J Westen on

The Romanian community launched its fundraising efforts in support of Romanian studies with a delightful Romanian Chamber Music Night on May 12, 2013. Works by Enescu, Bartok, and Porumbescu were performed by violinist Cristian Gruber, cellist Cealice Kennison, violist Adam Weiss and pianist Angela Draghicescu. Historical context was provided by Ileana Marin and musical context by Claudia Jensen. Proceeds from the concert were used to establish the department’s latest fund, the Romanian Studies Fund.
