PIANIST TO PERFORM NOON TUNE RECITAL AT PITT-BRADFORD

BRADFORD, Pa. – Pianist Patrick Connolly, an internationally recognized soloist and chamber musician, will perform Thursday, Oct. 28, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

His recital, the first Noon Tunes event of the semester, will take place in Blaisdell Hall’s Studio Theater at 11:30 a.m. The concert is free and is an offering of the university’s Spectrum Series.

Connolly’s program will include Bach’s “English Suite in F major, BWV 809,” Franz Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6” and Ludwig van Beethoven’s famous “Sonata in F minor, Op. 57” (commonly known as the “Appassionata”).

He will also premiere a short work by Dr. John Levey, assistant professor of music at Pitt-Bradford.

“Patrick and I have collaborated on several occasions, and I’m delighted that he’s agreed to yet another premiere,” Levey said. “He’s the best kind of performer: creative, knowledgeable, and brilliant technically. The Steinway will get quite a workout.”

Connolly has taken prizes at the French Piano Institute and International Competition, Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition, Arthur Dann Memorial Piano Competition and Clara Wells International Piano Competition. He has appeared as a soloist with the South Carolina Philharmonic and as a Stern Scholar at the Aspen Music Festival and School.

Currently, he is a Gilleece Doctoral Fellow at the City University of New York. He holds degrees in piano and mathematics from the Oberlin Conservatory and Oberlin College.

More information about the Spectrum Series is available by contacting Patty Colosimo, assistant director of arts programming, at (814) 362-5155.
