After spending 32 years at the helm of Spoleto's chamber music series, Charles Wadsworth is stepping down, presenting his final performance on June 7.

Get more coverage in our Spoleto special section. The master's departure is huge news that's already garnered a full write-up in The New York Times -- but now the question is ever-so-softly turning to "Who's next?"

Well, it's looking to be Geoff Nuttall, violinist and leader of the St. Lawrence String Quartet.

And as the City Paper aptly asks, it's not a question of can Nuttall do the job, but can anyone live up to Wadsworth's reputation?

If you'd like to see one of Wasworth's final productions, the big events are sold out, but you can still catch one of the Chamber Music session's he's produced.
