Pianist Elizabeth Moak to give CCPA's first concert of season on Sept. 6 at Ganz Hall

Posted: 08/30/2012
The Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University will usher in the performance season with a concert featuring internationally renowned pianist Elizabeth Moak at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 6 in Roosevelt’s seventh-floor Ganz Hall.

Moak, who has won several competitions and has performed worldwide, also will give a master class from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 7 in Ganz Hall.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will feature compositions by Judith Lang Zaimont, a Guggenheim Fellowship, National Endowment and Aaron Copland award winner, whose works have been described by the New York Times as “exquisitely crafted, vividly characterized and wholly appealing.” Praised for her “sensitivity” and “generous imagination” by La Suisse, Moak will present the all-Zaimont concert in celebration of the pianist’s 2012 debut solo recording ART FIRE SOUL: Piano Works of Judith Lang Zaimont.

Winner of the Mu Phi Epsilon International Competition and several national competitions, Moak has performed throughout the United States and internationally in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Canada and Puerto Rico. She holds degrees from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, where she studied with Leon Fleisher, Julian Martin and Ann Schein, and the Neuchâtel Conservatory in Switzerland. Her performances have been broadcast both nationally and internationally.
 
Moak recently released ART FIRE SOUL, a comprehensive two-CD set spanning 50 years of Zaimont’s piano compositions, which has been featured on a number of radio stations in the United States and Hong Kong and recommended recently by the Clavier Companion.
