June 2, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - "DePauw viola professor Nicole Brockmann will be joined by violinist Allison Edberg and pianist Darcy McCoy [an adjunct member of the University's School of Music] Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the third concert of the 2008 Greencastle Summer Classical Music Festival," reports the Banner-Graphic. "Held in the sanctuary of Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church, the concerts are free, with donations accepted."

The preview adds, "Wednesday's concert will include a variety of pieces, including the Duet for Violin and Viola in G Major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Sonata for Viola and Piano by the Russian romantic composer Anton Rubenstein."

Eric Edberg, a professor in the DePauw University School of Music and director of the series, notes, "We are deeply saddened by the passing of our colleague and friend, Stanley Irwin. I think he would have wanted us to go ahead with the concert as planned, so we will, and will have a moment of silence in his honor."
