Randall Hodgkinson with Worcester Chamber Music Society -
April 5, 2014
Saturday evening performance at 8PM in Worcester's Tuckerman Hall
The presentation is a collaboration between Music Worcester and the Worcester Chamber Music Society, engaging star pianist and New England Conservatory faculty member Randall Hodgkinson to come to Worcester. Randall Hodgkinson, grand prize winner of the International American Music Competition sponsored by Carnegie Hall and the Rockefeller Foundation, has performed with orchestras in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Boston, Cleveland and abroad in Italy and Iceland. In addition he has performed numerous recital programs spanning the repertoire from J.S. Bach to Donald Martino. He is an artist member of the Boston Chamber Music Society and performs the four-hand and two-piano repertoire with his wife Leslie Amper.
Hailed as a group with imagination, style and chops, the Worcester Chamber Music Society took the Worcester, Massachusetts scene by storm with its initial concert in 2006. Within eight years, it has become a recognized cultural presence within the Greater Worcester area by presenting sold-out concerts to captivated audiences, receiving consistent critical acclaim, building new young audiences, and training rising musicians through both its Neighborhood Strings and Summer Festival programs.
