LYNCHBURG, Va. — Former R-MWC faculty member and world-class pianist Ray Luck will be returning to the College to offer a benefit concert for the indigenous people of Guyana on Friday, January 31st at 8:00PM in the Smith Hall Theatre in the Smith Memorial Building on the campus of Randolph-Macon Woman's College. Luck will be performing, among other things, a Mozart sonata, a Chopin nocturne, and a group of Romantic pieces by 19th century Irish composer John Field. Admission to the concert is free, but a donation of $10 is suggested.

Luck, who grew up in Guyana, returned there in March of 2002 for a special performance in the rainforest for the residents of a Wai-Wai tribal village. That trip, along with a later faculty research trip to Guyana, was put together with the assistance of former Quillian Visiting International Professor Michael Gilkes.
