Season opens Sunday with violinist Oliveira

By Lawrence A. Johnson

If anyone deserves credit for the lengthening music season in South Florida, it’s Doreen Marx. Last season Marx’s Sunday Afternoons of Music series stretched into June, and this weekend she kicks off the 2008-2009 music calendar in early September with a recital by Elmar Oliveira (left).
The distinguished American violinist and artist in residence at Lynn University Conservatory in Boca Raton, will join pianist Robert Koenig for a meat-and-potatoes program featuring Mozart’s Sonata in A major, K.305, Schubert’s Duo in A major, Brahms’ Sonatensatz and Ernest Bloch’s Sonata No. 2 Poeme mystique. The concert is 4 p.m. at Gusman Concert Hall, 1314 Miller Drive in Coral Gables. Tickets are $40, $32 for seniors and $10 for students. Call 305-271-7150 or visit
