Paul Lewis, piano
May 8, Friday
8:00 PM, Mahaney Center for the Arts, Concert Hall
Twelve years ago, Performing Arts Series director Paul Nelson was the first presenter to invite now-internationally acclaimed pianist Paul Lewis to perform in the states. Since then, many Middlebury performances and awards for Lewis have transpired; so it seems only fitting that Lewis should return to play Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas (opp. 109–111) for Nelson’s final concert as series director. A reception honoring Nelson and his 30 years directing the series follows the concert. Professor Greg Vitercik, chair of the music department, offers a pre-concert lecture at 7:15 PM in Room 221. Sponsored by the Performing Arts Series with support from Performing Arts Series Society members Leif Magnusson ’69 and Charlotte Sibley ’68, in honor of Paul Nelson. Reserved Seating.
Tickets: $25/20/6. On sale to PASS members September 3; to Middlebury College ID card holders September 8; and to the general public on September 11. Go to the online box office>>
