Marty Lundgren Master Class
Each season, as a program of the Central Texas Orchestral Society, area string or voice students are invited to come and participate in a master class with professionally touring artists at the Azalee Marshall Cultural Activities Center.
The Master Class is named in honor of Marty Lundgren, one of the founding members of the Wildflower Guild and a key player in the creation of the Wildflower Belles program. Lundgren, a trained concert pianist and teacher, volunteered his time and talents to Guild efforts and performed concerts and recitals to benefit the Guild. Believing that performing artists have many gifts to share as teachers, Lundgren recruited professional musicians with whom he was friends to conduct the first master class during the 1992/1993 concert season. After Lundgren passed away in 1993, the Master Class was renamed in his honor and is conducted today as a memorial to him. Lundgren’s mother, Klara and his sister, Eloise, live in Temple and are frequent guests at the Master Class.
This season we welcome the Friction Quartet for a Master Class, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm Monday January 19, 2015, in the CAC's Frank Mayborn Auditorium. The Friction Quartet will perform a full concert the preceding Saturday night, January 17 at 7:30 pm.
The public is welcome to view the Master Class, but reservations are required. Call the CAC Office at 254-773-9926 for more information or to make your reservation.
