University of Virginia Chamber Music Series presents John Mayhood, piano
The McIntire Department of Music is pleased to present the 2016-2017 University of Virginia Chamber Music Series. This annual series, which presents innovative performances by the University of Virginia's world-class faculty and celebrated guest artists, is comprised of six professional performances for the University and the central Virginia community. These intimate afternoon concerts are programmed to offer both new and traditional works that will delight audiences of all musical tastes.
The 2016-2017 University of Virginia Chamber Music Series concludes on Sunday, April 30 at 3:30 pm as pianist John Mayhood presents a profound work by Morton Feldman (1926-1987).
In this tour de force recital, Mayhood will perform Feldman's For Bunita Marcus (1985). Prior to the performance, Mayhood will be giving a pre-concert talk at 2 pm in Old Cabell Hall room 107. During this talk, he will contextualize this seminal work and explore its social and political contexts to illuminate his performance of this rarely-presented work.
This masterful program provides an exhilarating conclusion to the 2016-2017 concert series.
Tickets for all concerts are $15 general admission, $8 for students, and are free for UVA students who reserve in advance and for those under 18. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Arts Box Office at 434.924.3376, or by visiting artsboxoffice.virginia
