Barbara Lister-Sink and her Salem College Masters piano students have had a surge of creativity as a result of the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order.

Lister-Sink is Salem College Professor of Piano and a Steinway Artist.

This Friday and Saturday, Salem College will host the final two concerts in its seven-concert Virtual Piano Recital Series. The other five are online now.

Graduating Masters piano students will perform “Global Piano Music in the Pandemic” on Facebook LIVE at 7:30 p.m. Friday. They will perform music from around the world by Robert Schumann, Scarlatti, Poulenc, Lili Boulanger, Louie (Canada), Matarrita (Costa Rico) and Say (Turkey) in celebration of the ability to make musical connections even in isolation. Pianists will be performing from their homes.

At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Regina Pozzi will perform her Masters piano recital on Facebook LIVE with music by Beethoven, Granados, Robert Schumann. She will conclude her recital with a suite of her own compositions.
