International Piano Series Presents Roberto Plano

We’re pretty envious of Italy. It’s got gelato, fashion, those accents. And it’s also the home of piano superstar Roberto Plano, who’ll be stopping by the International Piano Series this Tuesday. “This is going to be a truly luscious program, with a couple of surprises,” says Evie Christou, program director for the International Piano Series. “He [Plano] also brings his outgoing and friendly personality, which has made him a favorite, on and off the stage, at all the great venues he has performed — people just flock around him to hear him perform and speak about the music.” The series brings performers who range from young professionals emerging onto the world stage to seasoned performers with long-established careers to the CofC campus. For his performance, Plano is set to play pieces by Liszt, Scarlatti, Luchesi, and others.
