Nationally renowned piano soloist and recording artist, Clipper Erickson will perform a concert featuring the piano works of prolific African-American composer, Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943). Dett’s unique contribution to American music fuses European characteristics and traditional Negro music. This spiritual and moving style is not to be missed!
Employing a “colorful and powerful” technique, Erickson has performed throughout America and internationally. He teaches at Westminster Conservatory in Princeton, Temple University, and Rutgers University, Camden campus.
The concert is Saturday, May 6, 5 PM, at the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church, 124 Witherspoon Street in Princeton. This concert is free and is part of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church’s Community Arts Outreach Program. Donations are welcomed and will help fund future arts programs.
