Guest Artist: Spencer MyerLauded for "superb playing" and "poised, alert musicianship" by the Boston Globe, and labeled "definitely a man to watch" by London's The Independent, American pianist SPENCER MYER is one of the most respected and sought-after artists on today's concert stage.
Adding to his coast-to-coast credentials, Spencer Myer includes in his current season debuts with the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra, Arizona’s Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra and Colorado’s Grand Junction and Longmont symphony orchestras, as well as a return engagement with the Duluth Superior and Southeast Iowa symphony orchestras. His solo recitals and chamber music collaborations take him throughout the United States, and he continues as half of the Daurov/Myer Duo, having teamed up with the award-winning cellist Adrian Daurov in 2012. The Duo’s schedule includes a prestigious debut at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC.
