Manon Hutton-DeWys to Perform in a Solo Piano Recital 

GREAT BARRINGTON, MA— On Saturday, September 3, 2011 at 7:30 p.m., Bard College at Simon’s Rock will present alumna Manon Hutton-DeWyss in a solo piano recital in the McConnell Theater, Daniel Arts Center. The concert will feature works by Schubert, Chopin, and Liszt.

Hutton-DeWyss traces her pedagogical lineage to Franz Lizst. Her teacher German Diez was a pupil of Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, whose teacher, Martin Krause was Franz Liszt's pupil. Hutton-DeWys was winner of the 2008 Young Artists' Competition in conjunction with contemporary piano festival Keys to the Future, and she was the Bronx winner in radio WNYC's first city-wide "Battle of the Boroughs" competition, which also included jazz, rock, gospel, and hip-hop artists.
