The Music Department welcomes renowned piano virtuoso Michel Franck to the stage to perform an impressive program of sonatas by Chopin, Scarlatti, Scriabin as well as Beethoven’s beloved “Moonlight Sonata.”

Michel Franck is a graduate of the prestigious Julliard School in Manhattan and has performed extensively as soloist, chamber musician and accompanist world-wide. He returns to Bandeen Hall to inaugurate the department’s beloved Hamburg Steinway C – completely restored and refurbished to its former glory this past summer thanks to the generosity of the Bishop’s University Foundation and the Bandeen family.

Come and hear world-class piano playing on a world-class instrument. It is a special event not to be missed.
