Pete Nowlen, Music in the Mountains Artistic Director invites the community and music lovers of all ages to a free happy hour, June 21st at 4-6pm.
Joining Pete is classically-trained, award-winning pianist Richard Glazier. Glazier will be performing favorite works from the Great American Popular Songbook.
Glazier’s passion for the Great American Popular Song and more contemporary standards has led him to create special programs celebrating both eras. He plays incredible piano arrangements, then tells the history behind the songs, sharing fascinating stories about the composers, the shows, the films and the stars. He also shares funny anecdotes. His programs often include vintage images and rare film clips. He has performed in almost every state and has been a soloist with Pops orchestras across the country.
Glazier has had three nationally broadcast television specials on PBS. The shows have won multiple awards, including four Telly Awards for Outstanding Achievement in entertainment, documentary and cultural programming. He has been featured on the PBS NewsHour and has produced six CDs for Centaur Records.
Glazier will also be performing at Bernstein and Gershwin, at SummerFest on June 30. This concert under the stars celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s 100th and George Gershwin’s 120th Anniversaries with music from Westside Story, Candide, Strike up the Band, and more! The night will feature Robin Fisher singing “Glitter and Be Gay”, “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and “Man I Love” and culminate with Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with Glazier. Tickets and info here.
