His innovative programming and the varied repertoire he unearthed have inspired a new generation of virtuoso musicians to perform chamber music, and fostered the creation of chamber music festivals worldwide. Mr. Wadsworth is the recipient of South Carolina’s prestigious Order of the Palmetto and the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award.
Also performing this year in the Moseley Series are Dawn Upshaw (January 28) and Cavani String Quartet (March 17). Each concert is at 8:00 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall on the Converse College campus.
