Steve Siegel, Special to The Morning Call

Violinist Tim Schwarz, assistant professor of music at Kutztown University, has been crossing musical borders for most of his professional career. In 1995, for example, he brought American music to the Middle East for a nine-week tour, the result of his winning the Artistic Ambassador Competition in Washington, D.C.

Schwarz, joined by pianist and longtime musical associate Daniel Weiser, will cross borders again Oct. 12 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Bethlehem. The Upper Valley Duo, as the two call themselves, will present a concert exploring the contrasts between American and British music. The program features music by Bernstein, Copland, Still, Walton and Elgar, and opens this season's Second Sunday Concert Series presented by the church.
