The performance by Arsentiy Kharitonov begins at 2 p.m. The same concert will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at Mayville State University.

A prizewinner of national and international competitions, Kharitonov has been heard in solo recitals and with orchestras in Russia, Europe, Asia and the United States. His debut at Carnegie Hall was cited in the New York Observer as one of New York’s top six concerts of the 2015-16 season.
