Pianists Angela Glover and Rosemary Hunter will be featured in a recital at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) on February 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the R. G. Lee Chapel. Together they will be performing enchanting compositions by Schumann, Debussy, Mozart, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and Lutoslawski.
The extremely talented duo began playing together at Florida State University (FSU) when BCF Piano Professor Angela Glover needed a second pianist to perform with her for her audition in the Doctoral Concerto Competition held by the university. Glover’s professor recommended Hunter and the two went on to win the competition. The duo reunited again to perform for visiting guest artist, Theodore Lettvin, renowned American concert pianist, conductor, and professor at the Cleveland Institute of Music. They have continued to delight audiences as they play together.
