HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University pianist Kenneth Boulton will present a piano recital on March 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Pottle Auditorium.
The program, which is free and open to the public, will feature an array of 20th century American solo piano music, including works by Aaron Copland, Jean Eichelberger Ivey and Elie Siegmeister.
An associate professor of piano, Boulton’s experience covers all facets of keyboard music with a special expertise in American music. Described in “Classics Today” as “dynamically charged, fiercely committed and brilliantly virtuosic,” he is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Soloist (without orchestra) for his 2007 recording “Louisiana – A Pianist’s Journey” and the President’s Medal for Excellence in Artistic Activity, one of Southeastern’s highest faculty honors.
Boulton, who is also director of the Southeastern Community Music School, has been featured on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today.” He is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
