August 15 - Janice Weber

Janice Weber Pianist

Janice Weber graduated summa cum laude from the Eastman School of Music, having studied with Cecile Genhart and Eugene List.  She is a Steinway artist who has played in Boston’s Symphony Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall in NYC and abroad.  In ClassicsToday.com critic Jed Distler has this to say about Weber’s 2016 CD release entitled ‘Seascapes’… (her) “tender phrasing and staggeringly poised fingerwork are beyond praise.  I’ve been an unabashed Janice Weber fan since I first heard her play Chopin/Godowsky Etudes live in the late 1970’s, and her sane musicianship and unambiguously transcendental technique still operate at full capacity”.   In March 2017, Janice Weber served as jury chair of the Hilton Head International Piano Competition for young artists ages 14 to 17 and also performed a recital/master class about piano transcriptions.

Loff Geoffrey2

Geoffrey Loff returns by popular demand.  His Kingswood performance in August 2014 displayed great skill and imagination and thrilled the audience reacting to his exquisite solos of Chopin, Schubert, Tchaikovsky and Debussy’s ‘Claire de lune’.   Geoff is a pianist, repetiteur, and assistant conductor for Houston Grand Opera and recently coached The Elixir of Love, Nixon in China, and The Abduction from the Seraglio. 

The Miami native made his concert debut at age 13 and has performed as a soloist for the Chopin Foundation and the International Miami Piano Festival.  Geoff and his wife, soprano Katie Kupchik, are off shortly to Sofia, Bulgaria, where Geoff is a conducting fellow for the ICWF.  A July stint as staff pianist at the Des Moines Metro Opera follows.
