Jeremy Denk (pictured above), winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and regarded as one of America’s foremost pianists, performs virtually via Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Friday (January 29). The casual concert will be broadcast from Denk’s living room and will feature conversation along with preludes and fugues from Back’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. The concert, part of the Candler Concert Series, is free but registration is required and donations are accepted.
The Atlanta Music Festival concludes at 7:30 p.m. Saturday (January 30) with a concert that features opera singers Morris Robinson (bass) and Timothy Miller (tenor) with the Meridian Chorale. Robinson and Miller are both known locally for their work with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and The Atlanta Opera. The program will feature music by composer Trevor Weston. The virtual concert is free. Once it’s premiered, it will be available for viewing on the Atlanta Music Festival website through the end of 2021.
