Event Details

Please join the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance for a very special evening of music featuring pianist Blair McMillen

Blair McMillen has established himself as one of the most versatile and sought-after pianists today. The New York Times has described him as "new music's torchbearer" and raved about his "riveting, sharp-edged, cluster-driven pianism." McMillen has performed in venues both traditional and avant-garde; from Carnegie Hall, the Moscow Conservatory, Miller Theatre, and the Library of Congress; to (le) Poisson Rouge, Galapagos, and the Knitting Factory. Recent highlights include the Walter Piston Concertino and Ives 4th Symphony at Carnegie Hall, numerous performances with the New York Philharmonic and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and over a dozen performances of John Cage's magnum-opus Sonatas and Interludes. An avid chamber player, he is pianist for the Naumburg Award-winning Da Capo Chamber Players, the six-piano group Grand Band, the American Modern Ensemble, and others. McMillen lives in New York City and serves on the music faculty at Bard College and Conservatory. For more information about Mr. McMillen, please visit his website.
