Dana Hall School of Music continues its First Sunday Music Series with a concert featuring Ian Lindsey, piano. Lindsey will be performing an all-Liszt program in commemoration of the recent 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth in 2011. Last April, Lindsey performed Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies, Nos. 1-9, and this recital will continue with the Hungarian Rhapsodies Nos. 10-19. Ian Lindsey has been on the faculty of the Dana Hall School of Music since 2000. After graduating from the Walnut Hill School of the Performing Arts, Ian Lindsey continued his studies with Randall Hodgkinson at The New England Conservatory where he received both his undergraduate and Master degrees. He has performed regularly throughout New England and the northeast, with virtuoso repertoire such as the complete sets of etudes by Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninov; Goyescas by Granados, and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies, which is he currently recording. Lindsey has won the Arlington Symphony Orchestra competition and was a recipient of the St. Botolph award for promising musicians.
The First Sunday Music Series is a new performance series hosted by Dana Hall School of Music. Each month features different members of the music faculty as well as guest artists. ”We created the series to honor the incredible performing talent of our many music instructors” said Jennifer Gaul, Director. ”We are extremely fortunate to have access to these high calibre musicians and we wanted to make sure our community had an opportunity to experience their talent. And Beveridge Hall is a beautiful setting for our concerts with wonderful acoustics.”
The next concert in the series will be on Sunday, Feb. 5, and will feature a variety of faculty members performing both solos and duets on flute, piano, guitar, and voice.
The First Sunday Music Series is free and open to the community.
