Shell Point Concerts & Conversations Series: Peter Fancovic, Pianist
- 7:00 pm
- $30 per ticket
Slovakia-born Peter Fancovic began at an early age as a soloist with the Conservatory’s Symphonic Orchestra and Bratislava Chamber Orchestra, winning first prize in the National Conservatory Competition. He received his master’s degree in piano performance at Manhattan School of Music in New York City. Though certainly an accomplished classical pianist, Fancovic has performed his own jazz transcriptions and renditions of early jazz piano music. He has been awarded prizes in the J. N. Hummel Competition held in Slovakia and, in the Czech Republic, the Marianske Lazne International Chopin Competition and the Hradec International Beethoven Competition.
