The sounds of melodious arrangements of Beethoven, Brahms, and other famous composers flowed last Friday evening from the stage at Motlow State Community College’s Powers Auditorium on the Moore County Campus. Tammy Hobbs, violin and viola, and Lisa Mauer, piano and viola, entertained and inspired the audience with a collection of duets and solos. Hobbs, left, an accomplished symphonic and studio musician, has played with the Chattanooga Symphony for 32 years and has been recorded on many film scores. Mauer, an active freelance musician who has played with the Sewanee and Murfreesboro Symphonies, is currently serving as adjunct faculty for Motlow. Both artists actively teach music within their respective communities. The Motlow Humanities Department sponsored the program as part of its series of musical and cultural events.
