George Winston Concert At UW-RF

Renowned pianist and musical stylist George Winston will perform at 8 p.m. on Monday, April 21, in the Abbott Concert Hall in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

Considered an interpreter of songs more than a composer, Winston said his purpose with each recording is to include the most appropriate instrumental pieces. His latest recording, "Night Divides the Day: The Music of The Doors," re-ignites the flames and energy of the 1960s and 1970s rock phenomenon, The Doors. Winston will recreate the unique musical style and sound of each band member while incorporating his own style and inspirations.

A Grammy-winning musician, Winston has numerous solo piano albums as well as many children's piano soundtracks, including several for Charles Schultz's "Peanuts" films and animation.

Wyman Series events are open to students and the public. The cost is $10 to UWRF students with ID and $15 for non-students. The audience also is asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the performance for donation to the local area food shelf.
