On Tuesday, March 16, at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific Time), join Gracie Award winning on-air radio announcer, pianist, and humorist Lisa Bergman as she brings her lively Great Composers Get a Makeover to Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival’s online audience.
The evening’s spirited exploration spotlights the innermost secrets of more than five centuries of classical music with anecdotes about instruments, sounds, composers, and techniques, with hilarity and occasional bloopers onstage. Lisa will entertain from the keyboard and promises laughter, goose bumps, and even an occasional tear.
Festival attendees will remember Lisa from her appearances as an artist and speaker at many summer Festival events and Leaves of Gold and Spring Thank You concerts. A concert pianist specializing in collaborative piano and chamber music, Lisa is a graduate of The Juilliard School, State University of New York at Stony Brook, and the University of Washington, cum laude. She has served on the University of Washington Music Faculty and has toured the Pacific Rim as an American Artistic Ambassador. Lisa is the founder of the Mostly Nordic Chamber Music Series in Seattle, Executive Director of Northwest Opera in Schools, Etcetera (NOISE), and is the Adult Piano Retreat Director at the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, where she served as Executive Director for seven years. She currently sits on the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival Board of Directors. OICMF thanks Catherine Pederson for sponsoring this event.
