Acclaimed Pianist Eric Zuber To Perform Feb. 10 at Tuscon’s Historic St. Augustine Cathedral’s Concert Series
February 10, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm| $25
Eric Zuber, one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation, will perform at St. Augustine Cathedral on Feb. 10. The concert on Tuesday evening will be a wonderful prelude to Valentines Day, and is part of a new concert series at the historic church aimed at contributing to the ongoing revitalization of downtown Tucson.
Zuber, who has performed at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the Sydney Opera House and Severance Hall, holds an astonishing nine major prizes from some of the world’s most important international piano competitions, including gold medals in both the Bösendorfer and Hilton Head competitions. Captivating audiences and critics with his sensitive and insightful artistry, he was also awarded the Arthur Rubinstein Prize for his outstanding achievements by The Juilliard School.
The New York Times’ Allan Kozinn has hailed Zuber’s “irresistibly fluid” playing while applauding his “vividly crisp articulation” and “solid technique.”
Considered one of the leading young American pianists, Zuber will be performing on a Yamaha CFX concert grand piano, recently purchased by St. Augustine’s parish to serve as both a centerpiece of the new Cathedral Concert Series and for liturgical services and other music ministry at the 146-year-old church, according to Carlos Zapién, director of music at St. Augustine and artistic director of the series now in its inaugural season.
The concert on Feb. 10 will take place at 5:30 p.m. at St. Augustine Cathedral, 192 South Stone Ave. General donation is $25; student donation is $10. For tickets and more information, call (520) 623-6351, email email@example.com, or visit www.tucsoncathedralconcerts.org.
