Boise State University piano professor Del Parkinson will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, and 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, in the recital hall of the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts. Admission is $5 general, $3 seniors and free for students of all ages and Boise State faculty and staff.
The piano recital is the first of the season for Boise State’s Faculty Artist Series. The program, called “My Favorite Chopin,” will feature some of the composer’s best-known works, including “Minute Waltz” and “Heroic Polonaise.” In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birthday, the presentation will incorporate visual images to dramatize the famous Polish composer’s life story.
“Chopin is a perennial favorite of audiences around the world, and the selections on this program epitomize the quintessential nature of his memorable melodies,” said Parkinson, who was recently named to the international roster of Steinway artists and who has seven CDs in release internationally.
