West Virginia University music professors will present a recital at the Creative Arts Center on Monday, Oct. 1. They are violinist Mikylah McTeer, bassist Andrew Kohn and pianist Peter Amstutz.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall (200A) and is free and open to the public.

They will be performing Beethoven’s delightful “Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-flat Major, Op. 12, No.3”; the rhapsodic “Fantasy” for violin and piano by Kenji Bunch; and the charming “Passione Amorosa” by Bottesini, a piece usually performed by two double bass players, but arranged for this concert for violin, double bass and piano.

McTeer received her bachelor’s degree from the Oberlin College of Music and her master’s degree and doctorate from the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music. During that time, she regularly performed with the Houston Symphony and the Houston Grand Opera. She was previously concertmaster of the San Juan Symphony and has performed internationally as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Italy, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.

Kohn holds a doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh and received the only Artist Diploma in double bass awarded by the Peabody Conservatory. The former principal bassist of the National Chamber Orchestra and Harrisburg symphonies, he is also a member of the Pittsburgh Opera and Ballet Theatre orchestras and an active soloist.
He has also recorded and edited for Music Minus One, a music production and recording company in Westchester, N.Y., and his compositions have been broadcast nationally.

A prizewinner in the Maryland International Piano Competition and a medalist in the Casagrande International Piano Competition in Italy, Amstutz has performed throughout Europe and the United States. In recent years, he has also made frequent tours of Asia. He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees at Peabody Conservatory of Music and was a Fulbright Scholar in Austria for two years at the Vienna Academy of Music.
