Come help start an “entertaining” tradition at Rutgers University in Newark. 

On the evening of Nov. 2, Rutgers-Newark will launch what it hopes will become an annual event:  “An Evening of Music & Art,” combining a concert, gallery visit, reception and gallery talk into one multifaceted program. The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 5 p.m., in the  Paul Robeson Campus Center, 350 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.  

The evening will begin in the second-floor University Club with a at 5 p.m. concert by a renowned guest artist, Franco-Israeli violinist Max Zorin, a member of the music faculty at Penn State University.  Zorin and pianist Vincent Balse will perform several pieces: the Sonata for violin and piano No. 1 by Gabriel Fauré; John Williams’ Three pieces from the film Schindler’s List; an arrangement of music from Kurt Weill’s Three Penny Opera; Joseph Achron’s Hebrew Melody;  and Pablo de Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy.
