Presented by Pamela Howland
Music’s exceptional power to evoke memories and emotions functions on both personal and cultural levels, opening windows into wider issues of identity, ethnicity, empathy, and belonging.
Join concert pianist/Steinway Artist, and Fulbright Scholar Pamela Howland, on a journey to deepen and reinvigorate your individual and collective relationship with music in this concert-conversation-demonstration featuring music from Chopin to The Beatles, Debussy to Ragtime & Blues, and Folk Songs to Movie Music.
Pamela Howland’s passion for promoting classical music has led her to develop a unique style of performance which allows her audiences to go away educated and entertained, feeling they have learned something about themselves and the world, as well as the music.
PAMELA HOWLAND is a gifted American pianist, Steinway Artist, 2017-18 U.S. Fulbright Scholar to Poland, arranger, composer, and educator based in North Carolina. She tours throughout the U.S and Europe, has recorded 18 CDs, been featured on live NPR programs and American Public Media’s “Performance Today,” and has over 11 MILLION listens for her version of Chopin’s “Farewell” Waltz on Spotify. www.pamelahowland.com
