Maisonpierres perform February 8 at Moore Hall
On Tuesday, February 8 at 7:30 p.m., Elizabeth and Jonathan Maisonpierre (Music) will present a recital of piano duets in Moore Hall Auditorium. Admission is free.
The program will include “Rondo in A Major” by Franz Schubert, “Sonata for Piano, Four Hands” by Bernard Heiden, selections from “Places, Op. 9” by Robert Russell, “Legends” by Antonin Dvorak, and “Sonata for Piano, Four Hands” by John LaMontaine.
The Maisonpierres have been playing duets for 32 years. They first performed together as undergraduates at Ohio Wesleyan University in 1972 where they were students of Robert Lawrence.
