Bookmark and Share

If you look up a video of Bowling Green native Alex DePue on Youtube, you might see the violinist playing a cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" that's registered more than 4 million views. In other videos he's playing covers of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," Journey's "Separate Ways," and Starship's "We Built This City" while his long hair dangles in front of his face. The 46-year-old violinist has spent four decades perfecting his skills, resulting in numerous accolades throughout his life, including a Carnegie Hall debut in New York City at the age of 14.

DePue will be joined by the DePue Brothers Band to perform the group's 2013 album When It's Christmas Time, as well as other songs, for a holiday spectacular concert at 2 p.m. Friday at Kobacker Hall inside the Moore Musical Arts Center on the campus of BGSU. Featured in the group are Wallace, composer and arranger; Jason, violin and mandolin; and Zach DePue, violin; Wallace DePue, Jr., violin; Don Liuzzi, percussion; Aria Curzon, soprano; Mark Cosgrove, acoustic guitar; Kevin MacConnell, electric bass; and Mike Munford, banjo.    Photo of Geoff Burns
