Pianist Albert Kim to Perform
Free Noon Tunes Concert at Pitt-Bradford

American pianist Albert Kim will give a free Noon Tunes concert Oct. 15 at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford as part of the Spectrum arts series.

The concert will take place at noon in the Bromeley Family Theater, located in Blaisdell Hall.

Among his selections will be Sergei Prokofiev’s Sonata no. 8 and J.S. Bach’s Partita no. 2 in C minor.

Kim has given many solo and chamber recitals throughout the United States and Europe following his debut at the age of 10, when he substituted for an ailing Vladimir Horowitz in a gala performance at Carnegie Hall.

He has collaborated with a diverse range of performing groups and also maintains an active schedule as a composer, arranger and teacher of piano and music theory. He will earn his doctorate this fall from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., where he studied with Soviet pianist Natalya Antonova, and is currently a professor of music at Linfield College in Oregon.

Spectrum features visual, literary and performing artists chosen by university arts faculty with an emphasis on academic and curriculum-based events and activities.
