‘Twenty Fingers’ closes RIC’s Masterworks Concerts series
Don Fowler

Rhode Island College’s Wednesday Masterworks Concerts presents “Twenty Fingers” with dual pianists Michael Lewin and Judith Lynn Stillman Wednesday, April 10 at 1 p.m. in Sapinsley Hall at the Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts.

The popular concert series treated its audience to a dazzling concert last week, with Stillman performing with the acclaimed Lydian String Quartet, featuring works by Schumann. The celebrated pianist returns to play with Michael Lewin in an hour-long concert featuring works by Mozart, Schubert, Poulenc and Dvorak.

We have been attending the concerts for years and are always amazed at the combination of local talent and world-renowned guest artists. A number of assisted living facilities bring their residents to the concerts, which are attended by students, faculty and music lovers from around the state.

A $10 donation is suggested, and it is a bargain. The artists remain after the concert for a lively question and answer session.

Rhode Island College offers a number of free and inexpensive concerts throughout the year, including the Muir Chamber Music Quartet, which will be performing their last concert of the season on April 8 at 7:30 p.m. Pianist Ann Schein will perform on May 14. New York City’s Ballet Revolucion will perform in Roberts Hall on Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased on line at www.ric/edu.
