UW Faculty Recital Series Presents Solo Pianist Sept. 20
September 12, 2013 — A solo piano recital continues the University of Wyoming Department of Music fall Faculty Recital Series at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Pianist Theresa Bogard, UW Department of Music chair, will cover a variety of styles, time periods and nationalities. This fall, she will perform a concert series at three venues out of state.
Bogard has developed an international reputation as a solo and chamber musician, an adjudicator of international competitions and an educator. She has been honored with numerous teaching awards including the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, and the 2008 Wyoming Professor of the Year Award.
She manages a faculty of 37 in her department, along with several international graduate students; and maintains her piano studio. Bogard is dedicating this month's program to her longtime friend and mentor, pianist Helen Walker-Hill, who died unexpectedly in August. Walker-Hill taught African American music courses at UW.
For those attending the program, be aware of the ongoing construction project.
The east parking lot, as well as the east entrance to what was formerly known as the Fine Arts Building, is closed. Patrons may enter from the west -- off Fraternity Row or Willett Drive -- and park on the west, north or south side of the building. The concert hall will remain open and accessible during the construction project.
Pianist Theresa Bogard, University of Department of Music chair, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in the Performing Arts Center concert hall.
