Pianist Hugh Sung plays Vernacular Dances at Philadelphia’s Woodmere Art Museum, July 30

hughsung6791.jpgNoted pianist and Curtis faculty member Hugh Sung will perform my Vernacular Dances, along with Mussorgsky’s enormously challenging original version of Pictures at an Exhibition and Chopin’s G Major Ballade in his Visual Recital format at Philadelphia’s Woodmere Art Museum (9601 Germantown Ave.) at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30. Tickets are $10. Call 215-247-4076 for more information.

Hugh and I initially ‘met’ on the internet, but serendipitously had the chance to finally meet in person when I was back in New York this past May. Not only is Hugh a champion of new music and wonderful interpreter, he is also a technophile and prolific blogger. Do visit his website to learn more about Hugh, his Visual Recital concept, and his experience with incorporating and embracing technology.
