From Carnegie Hall to New Braunfels: Pianist Richard Dowling Plays Scott Joplin
Fresh from a performance at New York’s Carnegie Hall, world-class pianist Richard Dowling performs works by Scott Joplin on the church’s Steinway piano.
Well-behaved children are welcome and encouraged.
Hailed by The New York Times as “an especially impressive fine young pianist,” Dowling appears regularly across the United States in solo recitals, at chamber music and jazz/ragtime festivals, and as a guest soloist in concerto performances with orchestras. An expert interpreter of both Scott Joplin and George Gershwin, Dowling will play Joplin selections from his recent Carnegie Hall appearance.
The native Texan, began his piano studies at age five in Houston. He gave his first recital at six, and won prizes in many piano competitions throughout his childhood. In 1990 Dowling received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The University of Texas at Austin.
