Praised as “intrepid” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “engaging” (Houston Chronicle), and “endlessly fascinating” (WQXR New York), pianist Michael Mizrahi has won acclaim for his compelling performances of a wide-ranging repertoire and his ability to connect with audiences of all ages. He has appeared as concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and teaching artist across the United States and abroad, and is currently on the faculty at Lawrence University. Mizrahi’s appearance on the 6:30 Concert Series is made possible by a generous donation from Mrs. Der Hua Lin.
The 6:30 Concert Series is an innovative performance series designed to connect the campus and local communities with music in a deeper way. Performances feature insightful presentations by performers, composers, and special guests. The series offers new perspectives on diverse musical styles, often exploring the music from multiple angles. The primary focus of the 2016/2017 series is the adventurous musicianship of the UWGB Music Department faculty. All performances begin early (6:30 PM), last between 60 and 90 minutes, and are free and open to the public.
