Juliet McComas Keyboard Marathon – Sunday, May 7 at 3 pm


Juliet McComas Keyboard Marathon
Masterpieces from Folk Traditions

The 19th annual Community Music Center Juliet McComas Keyboard Marathon presents Masterpieces from Folk Traditions, an exploration of works inspired by folk music from many cultures and regions of the world. Each year CMC faculty performers explore the richness and range of the keyboard repertoire through a unique lens in both educational and highly entertaining concerts. This year’s wide-ranging program will reveal how composers continue to draw from the beauty and energy of folk music and transform it to create their own expression. The thread of folk inspiration runs through both classics and new pieces, with selections from Ahn, Albéniz, Bartók, Brahms, Cervantes, Chopin, Dvořák, Esmail, Grainger, Grieg, Jang, Jianzhong, Lecuona, Liszt, Say, Schubert, Turina, and Yannatou.

Featuring performances by CMC Piano Faculty and special guests: Christopher Basso, Esther Chan, Jacqueline Chew, Lauren Cony, Paul Dab, Maria Rosi Garcia Plaza, Grace Huenemann, Jon Jang, Allison Lovejoy, Tony Martinez, Hadley McCarroll, Erick Peralta, Matylda Rotkiewicz, Betty Wong, and Shirley Wong-Frentzel
