Lycoming College once again extends a warm welcome to guest artist duo Christopher Guzman and Timothy Deighton for a recital on Sunday, Oct. 13, at 5:30 p.m, in the Shangraw Performance Hall, Mary Lindsay Welch Honors Hall, on the Lycoming College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

The concert program centers around three viola works written one hundred years ago in 1919. The collaboration — Guzman on piano, Deighton on viola — will entertain the audience with pieces by Rebecca Clarke, Paul Hindermith, and Ernest Bloch.

Timothy Deighton, professor of viola at Penn State, teaches viola, chamber music, viola literature and pedagogy, and orchestral excerpts classes, and directs the Penn State Viola Ensemble. As a committed teacher, Deighton has received several teaching awards, and as a performer, he enjoys a wide variety of performance opportunities, both in the United States and abroad, including several music festivals. His performances have been broadcast around the world, and he has recorded several CDs.

Guzman, associate professor of piano at Penn State, regularly performs for audiences throughout North America, Europe and Asia, as soloist and chamber musician and is a multiple prizewinner in many international competitions. His performances showcase a broad range of styles, from the Baroque era to the avant-garde, and he continues to collaborate with many of the nation’s preeminent new music ensembles. The New York Times hailed his performance of Christopher Theofanidis’s Statues as “coiled” and “explosive.”
