Arts in the Village - Frederick Moyer

  Arts in the Village Reopens Concert Series on October 1 with Frederick Moyer

  On Saturday, October 1, the acclaimed pianist Frederick Moyer will open the fall season of the Arts in the Village Concert Series. The   
  evening's program will feature classic works by Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Gershwin, among others.
 
  One of the most exciting pianists before the public today, Moyer is equally at home with Bach and Beethoven as with Ellington and Gershwin. His recitals    are creative, engaging, and entertaining and generally include time-honored favorites as well as pieces that audiences may be hearing for the first time.   
  Also featured is his MoyerCam, a projection system that allows the audience to see his hands as he plays.
 
  Moyer has established a vital musical career that has taken him to forty-four countries and to such distant venues as Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Sydney
  Opera House, Windsor Castle, Carnegie Recital Hall, Tanglewood, and the Kennedy Center. He has appeared as piano soloist with world-renowned   
  orchestras including the Cleveland, Philadelphia and Minnesota Orchestras, the St. Louis, Dallas, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Pittsburgh,   
  Houston, Boston, Singapore, Netherlands Radio, Latvian, Iceland and London Symphony Orchestras, the Buffalo, Hong Kong and Japan Philharmonic   
  Symphony Orchestras, the National Symphony Orchestra of Brazil, and the major orchestras of Australia.
 
  In recital, Moyer’s delightful commentary from the stage brings the audience into the heart of the musical experience. His wide-ranging interests have led    him to undertake many unique and ground-breaking projects, often involving software that he writes, including his own USolo program that allows him to   
  play while synced with recorded orchestra accompaniment.
 
This concert will take place on Saturday, October 1, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, in Rehoboth, MA 02769. General admission is $22, $20 for seniors, and $8 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m., and tickets are available at the door. First come, first seated. Wheelchair accessible. Payment may be made by cash, check, or credit card. Information: http://www.rehobothantiquarian.org/arts-in-the-village/
