Renowned piano duo to perform at USU

Utah State University will host American Piano Duo members Jeffrey Shumway and Del Parkinson in concert Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the USU Performance Hall. Kevin Olson, Assistant Professor in the USU Department of Music, says Shumway and Parkinson are both renowned soloists and the way they collaborate in ensemble situations is an experience that shouldn’t be missed. Shumway and Parkinson have been a piano duo team since 1984. They first met at the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition where both were prize winners. Dennis Hirst, associate professor in the USU Department of Music, says the American Piano Duo program promises to be fun for both classical piano aficionados and those new to piano concerts.
