    Cellist Rajan Krishnaswami and pianist Mark Salman come to campus for a master class and recital in November. Graduates of The Juilliard School, they have toured throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. Krishnaswami is the founder and artistic director of Simple Measures, a chamber orchestra. Salman is a co-founder of the Delmarva Piano Festival in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

    Krishnaswami and Salman are local classical music superstars,” said Dr. Quinton Morris, professor of music at Seattle University. “They give an intimate and exciting performance.”

    Krishnaswami and Salman will give a master class on November 1 at 6 p.m. for students in the Instrumental Music Room in Hunthausen.  On November 3, they will perform cello sonatas by Brahms, Debussy, Hindemith, and Schumann at 7:30 p.m. in Pigott Auditorium; tickets available at the door are $5 students, $8 faculty/staff, $12 general admission. Both events are open to the public.

    The guest artist program is supported by funding from the Pigott Family Endowment for the Arts.
