UI professor to play house concerts around state

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An associate cello professor at the University of Iowa is playing a series of shows at private homes around the state in an effort to get more people into classical music.

Anthony Arnone is performing with his instrument at upcoming house concerts this month in Davenport and Iowa City.

He's also enlisted the help of a musical arts doctoral student who will play the piano. The pair has other house concerts scheduled in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Dubuque, Keokuk, Muscatine and Washington.

Arnone says the shows were inspired by his impromptu performance at a car service business. The experience was so positive he started performing at other public spaces.

The free house concerts involve 20 to 30 guests. They will be one-hour performances.
