Duo Piano Concert Featuring the Fazioli Grands

The University of Louisiana at Monroe School of Visual and Performing Arts will present a concert featuring their two Fazioli Grand Pianos on Tuesday, October 14th in the Emy-Lou Beidenharn Recital Hall. Immediately following the concert will be a reception with Mr. Paolo Fazioli in room 134 of Biedenharn Hall. The event is black tie optional and is $50 per person. There will be a brief social time beginning at 7 p.m. on the Veranda, and the concert begins at 7:30. Student musicians in a flute choir will entertain guests before the concert and at the reception a student string quartet will play.

The Fazioli Company has designed and produced grand and concert-grand pianos in its factory in Sacile, Italy since 1979-the year the company was founded by pianist and engineer Paolo Fazioli. Before January 2003, the only institutions in the U.S. that owned a Fazioli piano were found in Arkansas, California, Indiana, Iowa, Tennessee, South Dakota, Washington, and Utah. Now, ULM holds the distinction of being the only institution in the nation that owns two 9'2" Fazioli concert grands.

The concert will feature Donald Cornell, Deborah McClung-Guillory, Richard Seiler and Coralie White playing the Concert Fazioli Grand Pianos. RSVP to 318-342-1010 by Oct. 7. Proceeds from the event benefit the ULM School of Visual and Performing Arts.
