MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES —  Two world-class musicians, Jozef Luptak and Boris Lenko, will perform a concert “Tribute to CzechoSlovakia” at Cisel Hall, on October 25 at 7:30 p.m.

This recital is an ode to the 100 year anniversary of the sovereign state of CzechoSlovakia, which though it no longer exists has had a large influence on the Middle European space. Music will include pieces from Czech and Slovak composers Antonin Dvorak and Bohuslav Martinu as well as exciting duo performances of Boris Lenko and Jozef Luptak compositions.

MSU Billings students, faculty and staff, and the Billings community are invited to experience world-class international music through this cello and piano accordion concert. This concert is presented by Masterlube and is free to attend. 


While here Luptak will offer master classes free of charge to local cello students. For more information on availability please e-mail zanel@masterlube.com.

He graduated from the University of the Performing Arts in his hometown of Bratislava and the Royal Academy of Music in London. An accomplished concert soloist, he’s played his cello with a host of international conductors, and has a passion for multi-cultural music, especially Chassidic music.

Boris Lenko is a graduate of the Žilina Conservatory and the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. His musical career spans more than 35 years. He is a versatile musician with wide-ranging talents from classical to contemporary whose interests also include cross-cultural music.  He’s accomplished on the accordion, the violin, piano, and double bass.
