Carnegie Hall Star Makes
CSUS Recital Debut

The New Millennium Concert Series at California State University, Sacramento continues with a debut recital by CSUS faculty violinist Robin Sharp at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 30 in the Music Recital Hall.

Sharp - who was chosen by Carnegie Hall officials to be featured in its 1997-98 Rising Star Series - is a former violinist with the San Francisco Symphony. She joined the CSUS School of the Arts faculty last fall. Sharp's program will begin with the folksongs "Suite of Spanish Folksongs" by Manuel de Falla and Second Sonata by Bela Bartok, noted for his arrangements of Hungarian tunes. During the second half of her performance, Sharp will play to Ludwig van Beethoven's dark and powerful Sonata in C minor No. 7 and later to the brighter Polonaise Brilliant Opus 4 in D major by Henri Wieniawski.

Tickets for the concert are $10 general and $6 for students and seniors and are available at the CSUS Central Ticket office at (916) 278-4323, or at BASS.

Along with New York's Carnegie Hall, Sharp has appeared in recitals at the Musikverein in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and has performed as a soloist with the Indianapolis Symphony. Currently, Sharp plays with the CSUS Sun Quartet. She is the co-concertmaster for the Berkeley Symphony.

Sharp can be reached on campus at (916) 278-6950. Media information is available from the University's public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
