One performance only on Saturday, March 9th
On Saturday, March 9th, the Northeastern Junior College Music Department welcomes back to Sterling International Pianist Richard Steinbach who will be a featured soloist with the Briar Cliff University Singers for a concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Dorothy Corsberg Theater in ES French Hall on the campus. Tickets will be $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. Tickets are available at KC’s Music and Electronics and at the Liberal Arts office on the main floor of ES French Hall on the campus of Northeastern. Tickets will also be available at the door. Steinbach was here in December and did a phenomenal holiday concert before a packed house.
Bank of Colorado will once again host a post-concert reception which will give concert attendees the chance to meet Dr. Richard Steinbach along with Dr. Sean Burton and the Briar Cliff University Singers.
Currently, Sterling native Dr. Richard Steinbach, who is an alumni of Northeastern, teaches applied piano, class piano, and courses in music theory, piano pedagogy, and American music as Professor of Music at Briar Cliff University. He has performed extensively as both soloist and collaborative artist in concerts throughout the U.S., Canada, South America, France, Italy, Great Britain, New Zealand, Japan, and China.
As the grand prizewinner in the 1995 France Piano International Competition in Paris, Dr. Steinbach performed his solo debut recital at the Salle Cortot in Paris in January of 1996. Dr. Steinbach has joined forces with pianist/composer Howard Helvey to present Duo Piano concerts throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Dr. Steinbach has released two solo recordings on the Towerhill label, a Piano Duo recording with Howard Helvey and a CD of new American works for voice and piano with soprano Diana Guhin Wooley. Dr. Steinbach is represented by Truckenbrod Concert Artists -- www.concertartists.com
With an established choral tradition spanning eight decades, the Briar Cliff University Singers have been lauded at performances in local, regional, national, and international venues. Both the Cliff Singers and Chamber Choir perform a wide variety of choral literature from the finest traditions of Western historical music through ethnic and world music embracing all genres. In addition to a regular concert series through Briar Cliff University’s Department of Music, the Cliff Singers and Chamber Choir perform at university and civic events and collaborate frequently with the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra. In May of 2012, the Cliff Singers toured Italy, singing for Pentecost Sunday Mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City and performing concerts throughout Rome, Venice, and Assisi, including a prestigious solo concert at the Basilica of Saint Francis. Briar Cliff University Choral Music is supported, in part, by a grant from The Gilchrist Foundation.
Annually, this group makes more than thirty public presentations and represents an accomplished artist faculty whose collective teaching experience exceeds 100 years. Briar Cliff’s Music Department exemplifies the unity of musicianship and educational practice needed for success in the real world.
"This concert promises to be an exceptional night of music,” assures Northeastern Professor of Music Celeste Delgado-Pelton, who runs the music program at the college. “Outstanding choral music from the Briar Cliff University Singers coupled with the phenomenal piano music of international pianist and hometown hero, Dr. Richard Steinbach, can’t get any better!”
