The Columbus Chapel & Boal Mansion Museum in collaboration with Dr. Amy E. Gustafson will present a three-part Piano Recital Series in the Mansion’s historic ballroom, in February, March, and April on the days and times listed above. The Museum’s proceeds will be used to restore instruments in the collection, including the 1922 Steinway Grand piano and a 19th-century concert harp discovered recently in the Mansion basement.
Pianist Amy E. Gustafson has organized the recital series with Museum Director Bob Cameron, who plans to add more concerts in the future, both in the ballroom and in the museum’s beautiful outdoor amphitheater. Dr. Gustafson has performed across the United States and in Western and Eastern Europe. She studied under numerous piano masters at the Manhattan School of Music, New York University, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Juilliard School. Her many awards include second prize in the International Young Artists Piano Competition. In addition to her performing career, she is the director of the Gijon International Piano Festival and the Palmetto International Piano Festival. Dr. Gustafson will perform works by Cimarosa, Brahms, Liszt, and Chopin at the April recital.
The February pianist will be Alexander Kobrin, winner of the 2005 Van Cliburn Piano Competition, who will perform works by Brahms and Schubert. In March, Francisco Montero will present an all-Spanish program of piano works. Tapas and other refreshments, including a cash bar, will be offered at all concerts.
