Dr. Jill Dawe will open the 2013-14 Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 12-13, with a program featuring the music of Robert Schumann, Claude Debussy and Modest Mussorgsky.



She will present a master class Saturday at 10 a.m. and hold a recital Sunday at 3 p.m. The free, public events will be held in the Center for Performing Arts Recital Hall.

For the recital, Dawe, associate professor of music at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, will perform Schumann’s Papillons Op. 2, Debussy’s “Estampes” and Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

A native of Newfoundland, Canada, Dawe is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music. Her career combines solo and collaborative performance with teaching and cross-disciplinary projects.

Her upcoming projects will include a performance of Bartok’s Third Piano Concerto, recording the piano music of Steven Rydberg, and working with singer-actors in the Twin Cities region.

Dawe has performed as a soloist and as a chamber musician in Canada, England, South America and the United States, and has taught on the faculties of the Chautauqua Institution, Oberlin Conservatory and Lenoir-Rhyne College.
