Music as my Life's Work with Andrew Ranaudo, pianist

Pianist Andrew Ranaudo will present "Music as my Life’s Work," a master class, on Monday, Oct. 3 at 10 a.m. in Orange Hall Room 23. The class, which is free and open to the public, complements his Saturday evening solo recital "Music of Three Centuries."

During the class, Ranaudo will talk about his career and different aspects of music making. Even though he is deeply involved in classical music, being a musician of the 21st century, he regularly plays very modern music as a soloist and more often as a collaborative member of an ensemble. He recently released original electronic music under the moniker UVA.

His focus on contemporary music has led to work with artists, composers and bands including Sarah Dutcher, Nicole Brancato, Howie Kenty, Erika Lieberman, Future in Plastics, and Tens of Thousands. He has performed with writers Mike Albo (Live Onstage! at Webster Hall), Sara Barron (People are Unappealing), Cary Curran (Celestia) and The National Theater of the United States of America. And the venues at which he performs are not all concert halls. He finds himself in theater and cabaret at venues such as The Neue Galerie, Lang Hall, Galapagos, Webster Hall, Glasslands Gallery, Dixon Place, Garfield Artworks, Hotel Utah, and Platform Gallery.

His life in music is diverse and exciting and open to new ideas and innovations. Come and relax while learning what music offers today if one embraces its opportunities. Questions are welcomed.
