Gordon Concerto Competition Winner
to Perform at Hopkins

Classical guitarist Paul Moeller will perform at noon on Wednesday, April 10, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Winner of the 2001-2002 Yale Gordon Concerto Competition from the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, Moeller will perform music by Tarrega, Beaser, and Piazzolla as solo guitarist. In the second half of the program, he will be joined by his wife, Kerena, to perform "Around the World and Bach," featuring pieces by Bach, Gnattali and Villa-Lobos.

Moeller has performed with the Peabody Orchestra, the Catholic University of America Symphony Orchestra, Northern Virginia Symphony, the Connecticut Concerto Consort, and the Baltimore Classical Guitar Society. He received the Eastman Conservatory's honorary performer's certificate and first prizes in the National Guitar Summer Workshop International Guitar Concerto and the National Federation of Music Club's guitar competitions. Moeller holds degrees from Northern Illinois University and the Eastman School of Music and a graduate performance diploma from the Peabody Conservatory, where he studied with Manuel Barrueco. He is faculty member at the Levine School of Music in Washington, D.C., and recently appeared on Maryland Public Television's "ArtWorks This Week."

British cellist Kerena Moeller has performed with orchestras in England and the United States and appears regularly with the Baltimore, Annapolis and Richmond symphony orchestras. She joined the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on its recent European tour. She holds degrees from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, the Eastman School of Music and the Royal College of Music in London, and a graduate performance diploma from Peabody. The Moeller Cello and Guitar Duo perform on their debut CD, Around the World and Bach. The duo has won first place in the Baltimore Chamber Music Award Competition twice.

This performance is cosponsored with the Peggy and Yale Gordon Trust and is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 36th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. These events are open to the public and admission is free. For further information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
