Radiance of Two

The Concert Series of Second Presbyterian Church is proud to present an incredible line-up of music and insight into the lives of some of our favorite Louisville professional musicians in our Virtual Concert Sunday, February 21, 2021 at 3 p.m. on YouTube 2ndpreslou. Our featured artists include violinists Gabriel Lefkowitz and Julia Noone (Concertmaster and Assistant Concertmaster of the Louisville Orchestra, respectively) playing the Sonata for Two Violins in C major, Op. 56 of Sergei Prokofiev. Jim Recktenwald (Assistant Principal Trumpet of the Louisville Orchestra) and his wife, Soprano Christina Bouras Recktenwald will present Alesandro Scarlatti’s cantata Su le sponde del Tebro, H.705, accompanied by Samuel Libra, Organist at Second Presbyterian Church. Ms. Recktenwald is a soprano section leader at the church.

A highlight of the afternoon will be the U.S. premiere of the transcription for two violas of Danzas Latinoamericanas of Boston-based composer José Elizondo by violists Evan Vicic (Assistant Principal Viola of the Louisville Orchestra) and his wife Laura De St. Croix-Vicic.

An online freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Women’s Global Cancer Alliance, a mission partner of Second Presbyterian advancing women’s health issues in developing countries. More information about WGCA can be found at
