Pianist Louise Dionne to Present Faculty Recital Celebrating Liszt's 200th Birthday
The SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Music will present Louise Dionne in a faculty recital of solo piano music Sunday, Sept. 25, at 3 p.m. in Krinovitz Recital Hall, Hawkins Hall.
Dionne will perform selections by Franz Liszt in a program celebrating the 200th anniversary of his birth year. Also on the program is one of Chopin’s etudes and Dionne’s August 2007 composition, “Floating on Lake Champlain.” Admission is free and open to the public.
Dionne’s new CD, titled “Floating on Lake Champlain,” will be for sale following the concert. It was recorded in March and May 2011 in Miami, Fla., at The Hit Factory at Criteria Studio. The CD includes Dionne’s composition by the same title as well as works by Bach, Scarlatti, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Chopin.
Dionne has performed extensively around the region for many years and has performed in venues across the United States and Canada. She has been a member of the music faculty at SUNY Plattsburgh for more than 10 years and has maintained her private studio on Margaret Street for 23 years. She received her Master of Music degree from Ithaca College in 1988 and her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music and two minors in French and Spanish from SUNY Plattsburgh in 1985. Dionne shares a home with her Cuban-born husband, Ernesto Rodriguez, and their son, Camilo, a budding two-year old musician.
