HUNTINGTON, WV -

 

Pianist Arunesh Nadgir will give  a guest artist recital at 8 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Jomie Jazz Forum on Marshall University's Huntington campus. The program includes virtuoso piano music from the Romantic era by Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt and Alexander Scriabin.

"I am looking forward to an evening of wonderful Romantic piano music," said Henning Vauth, assistant professor of piano at Marshall. "Arunesh Nadgir is praised for his passionate, sensitive and thoughtful musical style. It will be nice to enjoy an hour of relaxing music during the busy Christmas season."

Nadgir, who has concertized as soloist and chamber musician at Carnegie Hall, South America, Europe and Asia, holds degrees from the Juilliard School, the Eastman School of Music, and the New England Conservatory of Music. He currently serves as assistant professor of piano at Middle Tennessee State University and as president of the Middle Tennessee Music Teachers Association.

For information, contact Vauth in the School of Music and Theatre at 304-696-3117.
