special duo recital

Michelle Ross (10 CC), Violin


Sean Shibe, guitar.  

Reid Hall, Nov. 23 - 7:30pm


Ross and Shibe met at the Marlboro Music Festival almost ten years ago, and this concert will mark their first, highly-anticipated collaboration. Bonded over their mutual love of J.S. Bach, this recital will weave in and out of compositions by Bach, Schubert, Debussy, Arvo Pärt, original works and improvisations by Ross, and more.

Michelle Barzel Ross (CC'10) is a violinist, composer, and improviser. Praised for her debut album Discovering Bach: Complete Sonatas and Partitas of J.S. Bach, Michelle is featured on Jon Batiste’s latest album: WE ARE, Movement 11. Michelle recently performed “Fratres” with the Grammy award winning Experiential Orchestra and James Blachly, in collaboration with Artefact Ensemble, in “Celebrating Arvo Pärt” at the Temple of Dendur in the Met Museum.

Sean Shibe brings a fresh and innovative approach to the traditional classical guitar by experimenting with instruments and repertoire. The first guitarist to be selected for the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme, and to be awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, Shibe was a prize-winner at the 2015 YCAT International Auditions. In 2018, he became the first guitarist to receive the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Young Artists and the following year he won a Gramophone Award in the newly-created ​‘Concept Album’ category for his critically acclaimed recording softLOUD.
