Francesca Hurst, piano concert

Recognized for her “quicksilver passagework” and “tender lyricism” (The Washington Post), yet not afraid to shout, swing her foot onto the piano or don fingerless gloves if the music demands it, pianist Francesca Hurst divides her playing evenly between classical and contemporary music. Classically trained, she accidentally fell into the new music scene in 2013 when she stepped in last minute for a gig with Great Noise Ensemble. At ease with a wide repertoire ranging from J.S. Bach to Caroline Shaw, and with a passion for performing the music of living women composers, she makes sense of the music regardless of style and period. Dedicated to connecting with the audience, Francesca enjoys giving salon concerts in smaller venues. During the pandemic, she created the 100-day online series Daily Dose of Piano, which featured music from the Baroque to today, including 14 premieres.

There will be a limited amount of seats available for this performance to registered guests. Please reserve a seat HERE. If you are unable to attend, please update your reservation through the link in the confirmation email or contact prior to the concert. Unclaimed seats will be available at the start of the concert but there is no waitlist.

The Van Vleck House offers a small venue with limited seating, and we must turn people away after only 50 seats are reserved. Thus, In fairness to people who want to come to our concerts, we must stipulate some rules about reservations:   If you have reservations and decide not to come, you must notify us by phone or email 24 hours in advance so we can allow others to have your seats.  If you don’t show up and don’t notify us, we cannot not honor future reservations.

The concert is free. Suggested donation: $10

Please note this concert will be on the first Sunday of the month, not the second, because of Easter Sunday.

Thank you!
