American pianist Spencer Meyer performing in Potchefstroom

American pianist Spencer Myer will be performing China Gates, Reflections and Playful Movements in the NWU Conservatory Hall on Tuesday 29 May 2018 at 19:30.  Lauded for ‘superb playing’ and ‘poised, alert musicianship’ by the Boston Globe, and labelled ‘definitely a man to watch’ by London’s The Independent, Spencer Myer is one of the most respected and sought-after artists on today’s concert stage.

Spencer Myer’s career was launched with three important prizes: First Prize in the 2004 UNISA International Piano Competition in South Africa, the 2006 Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship from the American Pianists Association and the Gold Medal from the 2008 New Orleans International Piano Competition.

Spencer Myer includes in his current season debuts with the Evansville Philharmonic, Macon Symphony Orchestra, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus and Symphony of the Redwoods, as well as return engagements with the Traverse, Springfield (MA and OH), Bozeman and Wyoming Symphonies and the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, in addition to recital appearances in Connecticut, Houston, Washington and Idaho.  This Steinway Artist will conclude the NWU Concert Series for the 1st semester.
