Matthew Lorenz, pianist, will be featured for the Noon Hour Concert from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. Thursday, June 29 at Calvary Lutheran Church. Free will donations are accepted. Currently based in Chicago, Lorenz is engaged in solo performances and frequent collaborations. He also brings a heartfelt sensitivity and attention to detail that makes him just as comfortable playing Bach and Chopin as he is playing Rachmaninoff and Liszt. He began his studies in Fargo at age 9 and moved to Chicago to earn a Master’s at the Chicago College of Performing Arts. In January he made it to the finals of CCPA’s Aeolian Classics Emerging Artists Competition. Educating piano students of all ages, Matthew is on the piano faculty at the New Music School, Chicago’s premier music academy, and also serves as the NMS Liaison/Program Director at the GEMS international academy. This season Lorenz is promoting his recital Chopin & Rachmaninoff, and this summer he will be on the road with The Wild Stage, a cabaret troop.
