Pine Mountain Music Festival to host Piano Recital by Ralph Votapek July 14 at Rozsa Center

HOUGHTON -- The first Van Cliburn International Competition gold medalist, Ralph Votapek, will perform a Piano Recital at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts on the Michigan Tech campus.

A familiar favorite of Pine Mountain Music Festival audiences Votapek's playing "embodies all that is best in 20th century piano traditions, combining the fire, poetry and tonal warmth of the grand-manner prewar era with the modern-day virtues of fastidious clarity and electrifying rhythmic flair." 

His repertoire includes Beethoven, Debussy, Chopin and Gershwin.

Tickets for the recital are General Cost: $26; Student/Child Cost: $11.
