Geoff Nuttall, first violinist for the St. Lawrence String Quartet, will replace Charles Wadsworth as director of the Spoleto Festival Chamber music series. The announcement was made at 9 p.m. during a tribute concert to Wadsworth, who is retiring.
Wadsworth started with the Spoleto Festival in Italy in 1960 and has been with the Charleston festival since it was started in 1977. He has also finished his last year heading the Charles Wadsworth and Friends touring series which stopped in Columbia and Camden.
The St. Lawrence Quartet was founded 20 years ago and has been a mainstay at the festival since 1995.
