Chamber Music Quad Cities will present The Recital, with David Bowlin, violin, Tony Cho, piano, and CMQC co-artistic director Gregory Sauer, cello, on Sunday, October 29, at 3 p.m., at the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Parish Hall, 121 W. 12th St., Davenport.

The Recital will include music from Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Beethoven, and Bartók. David Bowlin, a Moline native, is a past artistic director of CMQC, so this will be a reunion for many of those who attend.

Bowlin currently serves as Professor of Violin and Chair of Strings at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio and in the summer serves on the faculty of the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Maine.

Among his dozens of premieres are violin concerti composed for him and performed at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival and at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Bowlin is a member of the Oberlin Trio and a founding member of the International Contemporary Ensemble.

Cho is a frequent chamber music partner with Bowlin, and has performed across the U.S., Europe, and in South Korea. He is also an opera and vocal coach.
