Austin Peay presents its next performance in the APSU/Clarksville Community Concert Artist Series.

Eugene Fodor, violinist, will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Valentine's Day, Friday, Feb. 14, in the concert theatre of the music/mass communication building. The concert will include works by Vitali, Prokofieff, Bloch, Ravel and Paganini.

The artistry of Fodor has captivated audiences for more than three decades. A child prodigy, he made his solo debut at the age of 10 and began touring at the age of 12, winning numerous national and international competitions.

His distinguished career in recitals and as a soloist with the great orchestras of the world has taken him to every state in the United States and nearly every country in Europe, Asia, Central and South America.

Fodor has appeared in 16 guest spots on the “Tonight” show, on CBS's “20/20” and was featured on CBS's “Sunday Morning,” the “Today” show and “Good Morning America.” He has numerous recordings to his credit and has been deemed by the “Washington Post” as “an American treasure.”

Fodor's Valentine's Day concert marks the second year the artist series has teamed up with local restaurants to offer patrons a special opportunity of a dinner/concert package.

This year's package includes dinner at the newly re-opened Rose Garden or Café 541 and a concert ticket for $50 per person.

“The music of the violin is perfectly suited for Valentine's Day, and dinner in the lovely ambiance of the Rose Garden or Café 541 followed by Mr. Fodor's concert will certainly be the classiest event in Clarksville on this special day,” said Dr. Allen Henderson, professor and chair of music.
