Pianist Rosario Andino to Perform at JBU
Siloam Springs, Ark (September 8, 2003) - The music department at John Brown University presents pianist Rosario Andino in recital as part of the fall Lyceum concert series. The piano recital will take place in the Jones Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept 16. The event is free and open to the public. Andino will perform Haydn’s “Sonata in D Major,” Schumann’s “Sonata in G minor, Opus 22,” the “Three Waltzes” and “Ballade” by Chopin. Highlights of Andino’s performance are six Cuban dances and Liszt’s “Two Grand Etudes After Paganini.” Andino received numerous coveted awards, such as the Music Critics Circle Prize in Cuba and the Pittsburgh Society of Musical Arts Prize. She recently returned from an extensive performance tour in Europe where she performed in Holland and Spain. In 1991 Andino was chosen by the Missouri Arts Council for their Touring Program. Her concerts were so successful that the council nominated her to the Mid-America Arts Alliance Foundation where she was selected as the only pianist on the roster. Andino was born in Santa Clara, Cuba, and began her musical studies at age four. She continued her education in music with a full scholarship to Chatham Square Music School in New York City. She is summa cum laude alumna of St. George’s School in Havana, and Hunter College in New York City.
