Next week I’ll have a world premiere with pianist Lydia Brown and cellist Pansy Chang on a program entitled “A Night of Firsts.” If you’re in Missoula then it wouldn’t be a night to miss. I’ll be sharing the program with the Three B’s (Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms) and will be present for an intimate dinner conversation and a champagne reception.
Lydia Brown is an incredibly accomplished pianist, having performed with the New Orleans Symphony, the Toledo Symphony, and the Targu-Mures Philharmonic of Rumania. She is a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and has performed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Phillips Gallery, 92nd St. Y, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Alice Tully Hall and the Theatre des Champs-Elysees.
Pansy Chang has performed and educated all over the world. A Fulbright recipient, she has studied cello in the UK.Â Dedicated to pedagogy, she is a professor of violoncello at Miami University of Ohio, and has taught master classes at Yale University and the Beijing Conservatory.
