Hector David, violinist extraordinaire from Honduras
Hector David, violinist extraordinaire from Honduras, will be in concert 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25 in Martin Chapel of the seminary building.
David is considered by many to be among the best violinists in his home country and throughout Latin America. One critic said of the artist’s performance, “A violin concert that reaches every audience’s heart, bringing the message of hope and encouragement to each person who listens to his music.”
David was born in the city of San Pedro Sula and raised in a Christian home. He developed his musical interests under the tutelage of his father and went on to study at the Music Academy “Victoriano Lopez,” where he received numerous awards for his virtuosity on the violin.
He was nominated for a Gospel Music Association Dove Award in 2006 for “best instrumental album” for his recording, “Adonay.” The artist has played venues across North America, Europe and the Near East and is currently touring with his wife, Christine, to promote his latest release, “Semper Fi” (www.semperfiband.com).
The program is co-sponsored by the Latino Student Association, EMU campus ministries and the Community Activities Council at EMU. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children at the door.
