The legendary flutist Eugenia Zukerman will be the fourth performer in the 2013-2014 Saint Vincent College Concert Series at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center. She will be accompanied by pianist Milana Strezeva.
Her program will include works by Wolfgang A. Mozart, Béla Bartók, Francis Poulenc, Frédèric Chopin, Michio Miyagi, Gabriel Fauré and Gary Schocker.
In demand from New York to China as an orchestral soloist, chamber musician and recitalist, Eugenia Zukerman has been praised by The New York Times for her performances — “Her musicianship is consummate, her taste immaculate and her stage presence a sheer pleasure.”
She has enjoyed musical collaborations with Emmanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the Shanghai String Quartet and fellow flutists Jean-Pierre Rampal and James Galway.
As a broadcast journalist for the arts on CBS Sunday Morning, her interview subjects have included James Levine, Seiji Ozawa, Leontyne Price, Marilyn Horne, Al Hirshfeld, Dame Maggie Smith, David Hyde Pierce, Mikhail Barishnikov, Peter Martins, Daniel Barenboim and Isaac Stern.
In short, Eugenia Zukerman is a true Renaissance woman. As a performer, arts administrator, author, educator, internet entrepreneur, and journalist, she has been at the forefront of the international arts communities for more than twenty-five years.
