Maria Parrini plays Schumann, Bach and Bartók this Sunday

Pianist Maria Parrini, who often plays for our Sunday services, will present a special performance at the Fellowship at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10. She’ll play selections by Béla Bartók (Tanz-Suite), J.S. Bach (Prelude and Fugue in A Minor) and Robert Schumann (Davidsbündlertänze—extra credit it you can pronounce it!)

It’s a free concert, with light refreshments and an opportunity to contribute to a fund for Maria’s continuing education.

Maria Parrini

This is a worthy cause. Maria is an award-winning pianist. Originally from Greenville, SC, she’s a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music. Since 2018 she has performed more than a thousand concerts as a Lincoln Center Stage Artist, playing chamber music with world-class collaborators onboard Holland America Line ships. She’s also a founding member of the Callaway Chamber Players, has appeared with Astralis Chamber Ensemble and Pan Harmonia, and she has given concerto appearances with the Schwob Philharmonic, the Brevard Music Center Orchestra, the Clemson University Symphony Orchestra, the Fountain Inn Symphony Orchestra, and the Greenville Young Artist Orchestra. (This is a much-abbreviated list of her accomplishments.)

Maria is finishing a master’s degree in piano performance at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University, and she’s preparing to begin a doctorate in musical arts.
