HCT Co-sponsored Warner Free Lecture:
These, too, are the sounds of nature . . .
Did you know that the “sounds of nature” are not necessarily pleasant, nor is the music that imitates them? Join local musician Stephen Peisch and David Pihl as they present a program of piano music that was inspired by nature, including compositions by Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Bela Bartok, Amy Beach, Edward MacDowell, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Allen Hovhaness, Claude Debussy, Stephen Peisch, and William Thomas McKinley.

He has performed widely in the Northeast, and, together with Michael Finegold, co-founded the Essex Chamber Music Players.
David Pihl has taught music at Worcester State College, Northern Essex Community College and Becker Junior College. He is the staff accompanist for the Theatre Dept at Holy Cross College and has been the accompanist for the University of Massachusetts – Lowell Chorus and Westford Chorus.
