December 13 - Haskell Small, pianist and composer - A Journey in Silence

UFT December meeting:
Sunday Dec. 13 at 3:00pm
International House

Haskell Small, pianist (especially of 18th and 19th century music) and composer of contemporary music with spiritual themes, will talk about his new work "A Journey in Silence: Reflections on the Book of Hours."

He will play some recorded excerpts from his works. And with his wife (if we are up for it) will lead us in some Christmas carols.

Small will be performing at several places in Japan in December including Kumamoto on the 7th, out at the Kawamura Museum in Sakura (sold out on the 12th), in Tokyo on the 19th.

Born in 1948, he is a resident of Washington DC where he is head of the piano department of the Washington Conservatory. He studied in San Francisco and at the Carnegie Mellon University. He has performed extensively over the years.

Best wishes at this busy time of the year end season,

Peggy Kanada, moderator
