Piano in the Arts continues fifth season with ‘Baroque, Romantic, Contemporary’
Pianist Daniel Schene has long been known as a consummate artist and a superlative teacher. Schene will perform “Baroque, Romantic, Contemporary” as a part of Georgia Southern University’s Piano in the Arts concert series at the Fine Arts Hall on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m.
“Daniel Schene will primarily perform classical composers like Chopin and Bach, and with his unique approach to these well-known pieces, we will rediscover these masterpieces,” said Ben Warsaw, Ph.D., assistant professor of piano and director of the Piano in the Arts series. “His sound and technique are astounding — he truly is a master teacher and performer of the piano.”
Schene has performed throughout the United States, Canada, South America and Asia. Concertgoers have come to admire his comprehensive musicianship and formidable technique.
After his debut at age 15 with the Charlotte Symphony, Schene studied at the North Carolina School of the Arts with and subsequently at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. While at the University, he received the prestigious Joseph Battista Memorial Scholarship. Thereafter, he continued his studies at the Eastman School of Music.
