Acclaimed American violinist Andrew Sords will be in Youngstown on Saturday, March 3, performing at St. John's Episcopal Church, 323 Wick Avenue.  WYSU is a co-sponsor of this event. 

Sords is a native of Newark, Delaware, where he began piano lessons at 5, and shortly thereafter asked for a violin!  He studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music and Southern Methodist University.  Early competition successes led to international management, various debuts, and appearances with celebrated conductors.  During his career he has collaborated with 300 orchestras on four contintents. 

This is his second time performing in Youngstown at St. John's.  The concert begins at 4 p.m. and admission is free.  More information at www.stjohnohio.org.
