Faculty Piano Recital by Stephen Porter

7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Cochran Chapel

On Saturday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m., the Phillips Academy Music Department will present a Faculty Piano Recital featuring Stephen Porter performing works by Franz Liszt, Martin Skafte, Andrew List, and others.  This recital at Phillips Academy's Cochran Chapel is a preview of his concerts this spring at the Gothenburg Academy of Music and Drama in Sweden and the historic Old First concert series in San Francisco.  He has appeared as a soloist in London, Paris, Sarajevo, Lake Como, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, and New York City, where his program of the 24 Debussy Preludes was called “a powerful revelation...as if the voice of the composer were speaking to us” by New York Arts.  Mr. Porter has been a three-time artist-resident of the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, the featured soloist of the Bosnia International Music Festival, soloist with the Amadeus Orchestra of London at LSO St. Luke’s, and the guest on NPR's Diane Rehm Show in Washington, D.C.

This event, free and open to the public, will take place in the Cochran Chapel on the Phillips Academy campus. Cochran Chapel is handicapped accessible. For further information, please contact the Music Department at (978)749-4260 or email to music@andover.edu.
