This week's concert features pianist May Phang performing works by Hummel and Chopin.
Pianist May Phang enjoys discovering and performing a wide range of repertoire from Bach and Liszt to Libby Larsen and Chen Yi. Described as “vibrant”, “colorful”, and “evocative,” May strives to deeply understand and bring fresh insights into the masterpieces of composers such as Beethoven and Chopin while equally committed to discovering and championing the works of today’s living composers. Her 2013 debut CD Travels through Time featured works centered around Mark Twain’s satirical A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.
Currently the John Rabb Emison Professor of Creative and Performing Arts and Professor of Piano at DePauw University, Indiana, her prior teaching positions include Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwaukee. A former teaching artist with Young Audiences of Indiana, May is artist faculty at Interharmony Italy and continues to frequently adjudicate competitions and present masterclasses nationally and internationally.
The weekly Tea Time Concert Series includes a wide variety of musical genres, instruments and repertoire selections featuring both student and faculty performers from the University of Chicago as well as professional musicians from the Chicagoland area.
