ROCK HILL, S.C. — Two is better than one in the case of Opus Two, the dynamic musical duo that will perform at Winthrop University Feb. 5 as part of the Friends of the Conservatory series.

Opus Two is made up of violinist William Terwilliger and pianist Andrew Cooperstock. Internationally recognized and praised for their beautiful music and commitment to pushing the boundaries of the violin-piano repertoire, the two’s performance will feature the works of composer George Gershwin, including selections from Porgy and Bess.

The duo has delighted audiences since 1993, when the members won the United States Information Agency’s Artistic Ambassador Auditions. This led to a tour across Latin America and the Caribbean and performances, broadcasts and master classes through South and Central Americas, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. They have also played in France, Belgium, Scotland, Sweden and several other countries.

Terwilliger earned his doctorate from the Eastman School of Music. Cooperstock is a graduate of The Juilliard School and the Cincinnati and Peabody Conservatories. They regularly serve as jurors for organizations such as the American String Teachers Association and the College Music Society.

The Feb. 5 show is at 7:30 p.m. in the Conservatory of Music’s Frances May Barnes Recital Hall. Tickets are $5 for students and retirees, $10 for adults and free to patrons of the Friends of the Conservatory services.
