Visiting Artist Concerts
Mohammed Shams: Egyptian pianist Mohamed Shams graduated with distinction from the Cairo Conservatory in 2004. Masters degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Music, Glasgow, Scotland followed. Just after his last Brattleboro performance, Shams made his Carnegie Hall debut on April 15, 2015, with a solo recital in Weill Recital Hall. He returns to offer a benefit concert for the Music School which will feature works by Beethoven, Bartok and Medtner.
Each season our community is given a unique glimpse into the wealth of talent and experience present at the Music School. Faculty members perform solo recitals and collaborate to present a wide variety of programs. Music School students under 18 are invited as our guests to all faculty concerts. A sample of the 2016-17 year includes:
Messengers of Love: Duos and Solos of Berlioz, Brahms, Faure, and Schumann
Jennifer Hansen and Junko Wattanabee with pianist Evelyn Zuckerman
Luscious Lieder and Melodie by beloved German and French romantic composers including Berlioz, Fauré, Chausson, Strauss and Schumann.
