First Public Recital on GMC’s New Concert Grand Piano Features Dianna Fanning

POULTNEY--Internationally acclaimed pianist Dianna Fanning will perform the first public recital on Green Mountain College’s new concert grand piano in the Clara Hitchcock Fitzpatrick Jones Concert Auditorium, Ackley Hall, on April 27 at 7:30 p.m. Her program will include works by Mozart, Brahms, Chopin, Gershwin, and Debussy.

In the spring of 2012 Green Mountain College exceeded its fundraising goal for the purchase of the piano, a Yamaha G5 professional grand. Diana Fanning, music professor at Middlebury College, has toured extensively as a solo performer throughout the eastern U.S. and in England, France, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and Germany. Ms. Fanning has also performed on numerous occasions as a concerto soloist with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. Radio audiences hear her frequently over Vermont Public Radio, and she has also performed live on "Morning Pro Musica" (WGBH-FM) Boston and on WNYC, New York City.

The concert is free an open to the public.
