Piano soloist, recording artist and chamber musician Bruce Vogt headlines the Chamber Music San Juans concert Saturday, Sept. 10, 7:30 p.m. at San Juan Community Theatre.

Vogt’s recital — ‘Portrait of Liszt, Concert II: Spiritual Visions’ — honors, what would be, Franz Liszt’s 200th birthday in 2011.

Appearing regularly in concert within Canada, Vogt has also entertained audiences in England, the USA, Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, China, and Japan.

His Liszt series celebrates the Hungarian’s wide-ranging and powerful music.

Vogt has recorded two volumes of Liszt’s music and a critic from The Times of London said of Vogt’s work,  “I have never heard [Liszt’s] Norma Fantasy played with such consummate largesse...I was mesmerized by Vogt’s sheer control.”

Chamber Music San Juans, directed by Patricia Kostek, was founded in 1990 by the late violinist Andor Toth, whose dream was to bring world-class musicians to the islands.

The Business Partner for this performance is Robert Hare Stavers Photography.  Tickets are $24 for adults and $12 for student reserved.  $5 Student RUSH will be available at the door.

A private donor has made provision for free tickets to anyone needing financial assistance to attend a theater event.

The SJCT Box Office is open Tuesdays through Fridays, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturdays 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and one hour before any performance.
