Combining daring programming with an engaging performance style, Barbara Lieurance, a member of piano faculty at BSU, will bring pianistic virtuosity of an entirely new kind to the concert hall. In this program, "Barbara Lieurance: Inside the Piano, Outside the Box," she champions the compositional tour-de-force "Rhapsodies" by C. Curtis-Smith - the first piece ever written for bowed piano - along with a new commission inspired by the Rhapsodies by Canadian composer John Oliver. Other music includes the jazzy Russian virtuosity of Gubaidulina and the beautiful melodies of Brahms. The concert, which is open to the public and the campus community, will be held Thursday, Sept. 27, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. in Boyden Hall's Horace Mann Auditorium. For more information, visit
