Jeffrey Siegel’s Keyboard Conversations® returns to RIC Oct. 28

Jeffrey Siegel
Jeffrey Siegel will return to Rhode Island College for an eighth season on Wednesday, Oct. 28, with another unique “concert with commentary.” He will present a Keyboard Conversations® concert at 7:30 p.m. in Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall. Each composition in Siegel’s performance piece, “Chopin for Lovers” was inspired by a different woman in Chopin’s life.

The program begins with an entertaining prologue on the music, followed by a full performance of the works and concludes with a brisk question and answer session. The result is accessible music with a more focused and meaningful listening experience than an ordinary concert.

Siegel has been described as “a world-renowned pianist with intelligence, insight, charm and exceptional skills as a communicator” by The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Daily Camera of Boulder, Colo., noted that he is a performer who “... commands the unwavering attention of his audience with a unique combination of gifts as artist, educator and entertainer.”

In addition to his Keyboard Conversations® concerts, Siegel has performed as a soloist with many of the world’s greatest orchestras in the U.S. and abroad, including the London Symphony, Moscow State Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra.
