"The Beth Shipley Memorial Concert"
Featuring Pianist Richard Dowling performing the Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor
Including the Armed Forces Salute recognizing our Vets on Veterans Day, and works by Tschaikowsky, Verde, and Delibes.
Beth Shipley was a founding member and cellist with FSO for 30+ years. She passed away this Spring. The FSO members wanted to perform this concert in her memory.
Hailed by The New York Times as an especially
impressive fine pianist, RICHARD DOWLING
appears regularly across the United States in solo
recitals, at chamber music and jazz/ragtime
festivals, and as a guest soloist in concerto
performances with orchestras. He has been
acclaimed by audiences for his elegant and exciting
style of playing which earns him frequent return
engagements. Career highlights include a sold-out
New York orchestral debut at Lincoln Center's Alice
Tully Hall, solo recitals at Carnegie's Weill Recital
Hall in New York, and a special award from the
National Federation of Music Clubs recognizing his
outstanding performances of American music. Mr.
Dowling has presented solo recitals in the Far East,
South America, Australia, Africa, and Europe.
Works of Chopin, Ravel, Gershwin, Gottschalk and
ragtime figure prominently in his repertoire.
