Sophomore violinist to perform recital

Hesston College violinist Michaela Zook will perform a recital at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 23, at Hesston Mennonite Church on the Hesston College campus. The public is invited to attend.

Zook, a violinist from Hesston, Kan., studies under adjunct violin instructor Nancy Johnson. She is the daughter of Kevin and Marcella Zook of Hesston.

Accompanied by collaborative pianist and Hesston College music faculty member Ken Rodgers, selections will include works from multiple centuries including compositions by Bach, Rachmaninoff and Saint-Saens.

For a personal touch, Zook will perform an original arrangement, “Emmanuel” by Michel Columbier, a twentieth century French composer, songwriter, arranger and conductor known for his advertising jingles as well as television and movie soundtrack scores. Her parents will provide accompaniment while her brother, Caleb Zook, assists on trumpet.

Following the recital, there will be a reception in the Hesston Mennonite Church Community Center.
