lopez-taborWhere does Tango Meet Classical? Where can you hear classical music with a distinct Spanish flair? The answer is right on Fripp Island when the Fripp Friends of Music starts off 2013 with the innovative pairing of Lopez & Tabor!



Known for bringing a broad spectrum of musical genres to the Lowcountry, Fripp Island Friends of Music once again hits the mark with this fantastic duo. Alfonso Lopez, a highly versatile violinist, is one of the most prominent Venezuelan musicians of his generation. He is the concertmaster of the Venezuela Symphony Orchestra which, as the country’s national symphony, is the principal and oldest orchestra in Venezuela. He is a professor of violin, a conductor, a composer and a captivating performer.


Michelle Tabor, pianist, holds BFA, MA and PhD degrees in piano and theory earned from Tulane University, the University of Denver and Florida State University. In addition to her performing life, she has pursued research interests in Latin American art and music of the twentieth century, and has published articles about noted Argentinian composers Alberto Ginastera and Juan Carlos Paz.


Having performed in the U.S. and Venezuela since 2004, this will be the Lopez Tabor Duo’s first visit to Fripp.
