The Caldwell College Music Department and The National League of Performing Arts will present legendary violinist Joseph Silverstein in a master class for violinists, on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 3 p.m., in the Alumni Theater.
Silverstein’s highly engaging demonstration will illuminate the performance practices of the Baroque era, as well as the brilliance of one of the world's most beloved composers; Johann Sebastian Bach.
