Secrest Artists Series presents pianist Jenny Lin Oct. 18

This is a guest post from the Secrest Artists Series:

The Secrest Artists Series will present pianist Jenny Lin on Oct. 18 in Brendle Recital Hall in the Scales Fine arts Center.  The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m.

One of the pianists hand-picked by composer Philip Glass to participate in his international tours of his piano études, Lin demonstrates the many sides of her dazzling musicianship. Her recital for the Secrest Artists Series will consist of études by composers from Liszt, Ligeti and Glass, alongside virtuoso arrangements of show tunes by pianist/performers from Earl Wild to Stephen Hough.

Étude, French for “study,” is an instrumental composition intended to improve or tax certain aspects of performance technique. These works in Lin’s superlative hands create fireworks.

Tickets for the community are $5-$18. Group discounts are available.
