FAU’s Chamber Soloists Open a New Season
BOCA RATON (October 9, 2008) -- The department of music in the School of the Arts in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will present a concert by the FAU Chamber Soloists on Saturday, October 18 at 3 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Auditorium on FAU’s Davie campus, 2912 College Avenue.

Leonid Treer is the artistic director and pianist for the Chamber Soloists. Performers in this concert include Ajit Damle, santoor; Sudhir Limaye, tabla; Shirish Patankar, sitar; and Medha Kulkarni, voice.
