St. Petersburg College is excited to offer A Beautiful Evening with Spencer Meyer. Meyer will play Beethoven’s Sonata Op 110, Janáček’s In the Mists and Chopin’s Complete Ballades on March 20, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. at the SPC Music Center, 6605 Fifth Ave. North, St Pete 33710.
Lauded by the Boston Globe for “superb playing” and “poised, alert musicianship” and labeled “definitely a man to watch” by London’s The Independent after his 2012 Wigmore Hall recital debut, American pianist Spencer Myer is one of the most respected and sought-after artists on today’s concert stage.
Myers’ career was launched with three important prizes: First Prize in the 2004 UNISA International Piano Competition in South Africa, the 2006 Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship from the American Pianists Association and the Gold Medal from the 2008 New Orleans International Piano Competition.
He has been soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Cape Town and Johannesburg Philharmonics, the Indianapolis, New Haven and Phoenix Symphony Orchestras and Beijing’s China National Symphony.
A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory, The Juilliard School and Stony Brook University, he is currently a member of the Piano and Collaborative Piano faculty at Boston’s Longy School of Music of Bard College. Since 2017, he has released four CDs on the Steinway & Sons label. Learn more at https://www.spencermyer.com/
