BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The Gardner-Webb University Distinguished Artist Series concert featuring GWU violin professors, Calin Lupanu and his wife, Monica Boboc, scheduled for March 17, has been postponed. A new date for the concert will be announced later.

Lupanu and Boboc, who are both artists-in-residence at Gardner-Webb, founded “Chamber Music 4 All” to bring high quality chamber music to people of all ages and socioeconomics. They also desire to inspire, educate and build a sense of community through chamber music.

In addition to teaching students at Gardner-Webb, Lupanu is the concertmaster for the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and the GWU Orchestra. He has served on the faculty at Gardner-Webb since 2004. His awards as a soloist include the first prizes of the International Violin Competition in Stresa, Italy, and the National Violin Competition in Suceava, Romania. Prior to winning the national audition for the CSO position, Lupanu served as associate concertmaster of the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra, concertmaster of the Evansville Philharmonic, principal second violin in the Alabama Symphony, and concertmaster of the West Virginia Symphony.

Boboc has toured extensively in the United States and collaborated with several artists. Also a CSO member, Boboc joined the Gardner-Webb faculty in 2005. As a member of the Lipatti String Quartet, she won prizes in national and international competitions.
