Irina Kulikova, Russian classical guitarist, will offer a free concert at Sandhills Community College on Tuesday, April 11 at 7 p.m. in Owens Auditorium.

Under the guidance of her mother, cellist Vinera Kulikova, she started developing her musicianship at an early age. At twelve, she was already traveling throughout Russia and abroad, performing at gala-concerts and festivals.”
