Concert for 4 Hand Piano with Anne Chamberlain and Hilda Banks Shapiro - 2:30pm Hollenbeck Room

Piano for 4 Hands with Hilda Banks Shapiro and Anne Chamberlain

Anne Chamberlain has concertized extensively as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United State and Europe. Her numerous performances have included concerts at Alice Tully Hall and Town Hall in New York City, as well as appearances at other major halls, music festivals and universities, where she has premiered many works by her contemporaries.

Ms. Chamberlain was born in New York City, graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and studied at the Juilliard School. In recent years she has performed in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, coaching and accompanying singers from the Viet Nam National Opera Company and giving chamber music concerts with leading instrumentalists in the Ha Noi community

In addition to performing, Anne also works to connect people and music. Anne has been a member of the faculty of Bard College at Simon's Rock for many years where she teaches piano students. Her musical work in her own community, including directing a church choir, allows music to be shared in a variety of contexts, often of deep personal importance. She has wide experience accompanying the vocal art song - a repertoire she especially enjoys - and performing chamber music within settings that are both inter-generational and international.

Concert pianist Hilda  Banks Shapiro studied piano with Leonard Shure in Boston and with Artur Schnabel in New York. At only age 15 she was chosen by Sergej Koussevitzky to represent the Berkshire Center of Music, now known as Tanglewood, home of the Boston Symphony. By age sixteen she was given a critic’s choice award for her composition, the ‘Tom Sawyer Suite,” and at 20 years she was touring Europe. Hilda was a long time piano teacher at the Berkshire Music School, and still delights audience throughout the region.

On Friday, Aril 4th at 2:30pm they will perform a piano duet recital with works including Mozart’s Sonata in C major, Schubert’s Trois Marche Militaires, Faure’s “Dolly” opus 56 , Ravel’s ;ma mere l’Oye” and de Falla’s La Vida Breve; Dos Danzas.  This wonderful performance is free, and open to the public.
