Third Thursday: Giving Back by Giving Thanks

Join us in historic downtown as we get into the holiday spirit by giving back, including a free holiday concert in the Farr Best Theater presented by the ROS/CAR violin and harp duo. Check out the shops to get some holiday shopping done before Black Friday, and enjoy some seasonal treats from the food trucks.

Concert starts at 6:30pm. 

Rosalie Gilbert and Oscar Soler, met and began performing together while both were pursuing Bachelor of Music degrees at the Cleveland Institute of Music.  Recently moved to Texas, they have performed as a duo for many years in states across the country including Maryland, Ohio, Colorado, Washington DC, and Wisconsin.  Initially dubbed ROS/CAR by Rosie’s older brother, the name stuck.  The couple married in July of 2010.

A native of Caracas, Venezuela, Oscar had his solo debut at the age of seven with the Jovenes Arcos de Caracas.  Since then he has performed regularly as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player with groups in both Venezuela and the United States.   Oscar has taught for many years as a Suzuki teacher and at the college level. Currently, he teaches Suzuki Strings in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD.

Originally from Washington, DC, Rosie has worked as a professional harpist, harp teacher, and arts administrator. Currently, she is the Cultural Arts Coordinator for the City of Mansfield as well as performing occassionally with area ensembles and maintaining a small private teaching studio. The ROS/CAR Duo is happy to be living and working in Texas.
