Join us on Sunday March 18th at 3pm for a special performance by Dr. Jesselson and Dr. Fugo.
Since their formation in 1981, the Jesselson/Fugo Duo has been delighting audiences with their impeccable ensemble playing and the rich literature for cello and piano. They perform regularly at music festivals, universities and through community organizations throughout the South.
Robert Jesselson is a Carolina Distinguished Professor at the University of South Carolina, where he teaches cello and plays in the American Arts Trio and the Jesselson/Fugo Duo. In 2013 he was named as the Governor’s Professor of the Year by the SC Commission on Higher Education.

He received his baccalaureate degree at Oberlin Conservatory, with additional study at the Akademie des Mozarteums, Salzburg, Austria, and his MM and DM Performance degrees at Indiana University, where he was also awarded the Performer’s Certificate.
