A hall-of-fame-inducted musician will showcase her talents on campus Thursday, Oct. 19.

Barbara Nissman, pianist and West Virginia Music Hall of Fame inductee, will perform “Music to Love” at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. The concert, which will feature pieces by Beethoven and other artists, will take place in the Smith Recital Hall.

Nissman is a renowned musician, being referred to as one of the last great Romantic tradition pianists. She has performed in numerous orchestras around the world, including the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the London Philharmonic and the National Symphony.

In addition to the concert, Nissman will also teach a master class in Smith Recital Hall on Friday, Oct. 20, at 3 p.m. Those in attendance will hear about the ins-and-outs of piano performances and her experiences with teaching piano.

The opportunities offered by Nissman are profound to the Marshall community, said Dr. Henning Vauth, a piano professor for Marshall University’s School of Music.

Nissman will also make an appearance in the Huntington Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, Oct. 21. This concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Huntington Museum of Art.
