An All-Schubert Evening | Saturday, October 19 at 7 PM

Dr. Iva Ugrcic on flute and Thomas Kasdorf on piano will give concert in memory of Irv and Millie Shain. Irv Shain was Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin, and a great supporter of the Music School. He played the flute himself and these Schubert pieces belonged to some of his favorites for the flute. He also established in addition to his long running annual Beethoven piano competition, a woodwind piano competition. Both Iva and Thomas are previous winners.
