(GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.) – Anne Chamberlain performs works by Debussy, Scriabin, and Berg plus contemporary works in a solo piano concert in the Kellogg Music Center at Simon’s Rock College on Sunday, January 31, at 3:30 pm. Chamberlain will also perform works by Stefan Wolpe, Martin Brody, and Ursula Mamlok. The concert is free and open to the public.
Throughout the United States and Europe, Anne Chamberlain has concertized extensively as a soloist and chamber musician. She has premiered works by her contemporaries at numerous performances including concerts at Alice Tully Hall and Town Hall in New York City, as well as appearances in other major halls, music festivals, and universities.
Early in her career, the New York Times said, “Anne Chamberlain, a pianist with the technical tools and intellectual acuity necessary to play 20th century music well, did not let her century down in her recital at Alice Tully Hall. Early or late composers found in the tall young artist a persuasive advocate.” The Portland (Maine) Concert Association awarded Chamberlain the John Knowles Paine Award in recognition of her late 20th century American music performances.
Born in New York City, Chamberlain graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and later studied at Juilliard. In recent years, she performed in Hanoi, Vietnam, both coaching and accompanying singers from the Vietnam National Opera Company and performing chamber music concerts with leading instrumentalists in the Hanoi community. Along with these musicians, she appeared on VNTV, and performed for Hanoi FM radio.
A piano instructor at Bard College at Simon’s Rock for over 25 years, Chamberlain is the Music Director at United Church of Christ in Cornwall, Conn.
