Phil Weaver is, as his Web site says, “an innovative classical guitarist. He has a strong local following in Huntsville through the several ensembles he is party to. One is Consonare, a performance duo with pianist wife Ingrid von Spakovsky (she performed with Oboist Gary Parks in our second concert). Weaver strives to make classical music interesting and accessible to an ever-widening audience.
Rosa Vidro Richardson is an accomplished and dynamic musician as well. A quote on her Facebook page provides a hint of the bright personality she brings to the musical mix. “Half of the world claims they are musicians because they can “jam” on an instrument…I’m one of them.” Her performance duo with Phil Weaver is a recent collaboration. They chose “Toot & Twang” in contrast to the commonly held belief that serious classical music must be stiff, humorless and performed only in reputable concert halls!
While MAMCCS will maintain itself as a reputable concert venue, these two talented musicians bring serious classical music to the Tennessee Valley area in a fresh and approachable way which is truly at the heart of the Music at Messiah Classical Concert Series! The concert is April 27th at 4:00 PM.
