Oct. 21 – Piano Recital, Nathan Carterette

When: October 21, 2018 at 4:00pm

Where: Grace Congregational UCC Sanctuary

We warmly welcome the renowned pianist, Nathan Carterette, to perform the sublime Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach. Hailed as ‘wonderfully poetic’ (Westfalen Post) and “very compelling in his power and presence” (International Composer), Nathan’s innovative programming has inspired audiences to approach unfamiliar music with open ears, and familiar music with new appreciation.

Known for his dedication to the music of Bach, Nathan has performed the Goldberg Variations in concert halls, universities and churches throughout the USA. His live recording of the Goldberg on Pittsburgh’s classic radio, WQED, became the most requested pledge drive item in the radio’s history. He recently recorded the Variations to be released in early 2019.

Following the concert, all are invited to a dinner in aid of HEAL: Raising Our World.
