Shrewsbury: Pianist Vanessa Haynes in concert at Shrewsbury Public Library

December 8, 2013 - December 9, 2013

Free, but registration is requested.

Sunday, Dec. 8, Vanessa Meiling Haynes, an up-and-coming young pianist who now lives in Shrewsbury, will present a program of classical favorites, ranging from Bach and Beethoven to Haydn and Chopin, at the Shrewsbury Public Library, 609 Main St. The featured pieces will be the French Suite no. 3 of Bach, and the Appassionata Sonata of Beethoven. The concert starts at 2 p.m.

Haynes was born in Houston, Texas, and spent most of her early years in Beijing, China.? She is a former Young Artist Program student in the Cleveland Institute of Music and studied piano under Professor Antonio Pompa-Baldi and Emanuela Frisconi. She and her family recently moved to Shrewsbury.

Still a high school student, she continues her piano studies under professors Hung-Kuan Chen and Tema Blackstone at the New England Conservatory of Music. Last summer, she appeared in the highly rated NPR radio program, “From the Top,” which highlights young musicians from around the country. In 2012, she took part in the Cleveland International Piano Competition. More recently, she performed in Tuckerman Hall in Worcester with the WPI Orchestra.

This is the initial concert on the library's recently acquired baby grand piano, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library. The event is free and open to all interested. Please register online at www.shrewsbury-ma.gov/library, or call 508-841-8531.
