University of Wyoming Department of Music Professor Theresa Bogard will present a fortepiano recital Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. The performance is free and open to the public.
Bogard will perform a concert of Classical period music on a replica fortepiano built by Paul Poletti Fortepianos in the Netherlands. The fortepiano is a copy of a 1796 piano built by Dutch builder Lodewijk Dulcken. A fortepiano is a smaller, gentler version of today’s piano, Bogard says.
She is an active performer combining varied interests in historical performance practice, contemporary music, chamber music and the music of women composers. She studied piano at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Australia, the University of Colorado-Boulder and the Eastman School of Music.
A longtime member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), Bogard is well-known as a teacher and has been honored with numerous teaching awards. In 2008, she was chosen as the Wyoming Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. Her students have distinguished themselves in national and international competitions, including six national MTNA finalists.
