Keyboard faculty from the School of Music will offer master classes to high school piano students – and for the first time, organ students – during the eighth annual High School Piano Day Saturday, Jan. 30.
The event, which runs from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., will feature classes taught by Dr. Andre Lash, Dr. John Salmon, Dr. Joseph Di Piazza, Dr. Andrew Willis and Dr. Paul Stewart.
The day will be bookended by two concerts in the School of Music Organ Hall. Faculty members will give a recital at 9 a.m.; selected students will culminate the day with a recital at 3 p.m. Both concerts are free and open to the public.
High School Piano Day gives students an opportunity to not only grow as musicians, learning from faculty and fellow participants, but also get a taste of life on a college campus.
“The annual High School Piano/Organ Day is an important outreach to students who might be considering the music major in college,” Stewart said. “This day is an opportunity for the students to meet faculty and interact with other keyboard students in a master class environment.”
Registration for High School Piano Day is $20, which includes lunch and refreshments. Registration information can be found at http://www.uncg.edu/mus/pianoorganday.htm. The registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 22; the registration fee may be paid on site the day of the program.
