The 2018-19 University of Toledo Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series will conclude this month with a free master class and concert by guest pianist Joseph Kingma.

He will present a master class Saturday, April 6, at 10 a.m. and a concert Sunday, April 7, at 3 p.m. in the Center for Performing Arts Recital Hall.


The recital program will include Mendelssohn’s “Fantasie in F-sharp minor, Op. 28” (“Sonate écossaise”), and Liszt’s “Two Concert Etudes, S. 145” and “Sonata in B minor, S. 178.”

Kingma, whose sound has been described by conductors as “rich and encompassing, yet delicate and refined” and “flawless and expressive,” maintains a career as both a prolific performing artist and committed teacher.

He has won awards in numerous international competitions, most recently first prize in both the American Liszt Society’s 2017 Franz Liszt International Piano Competition and the Monroe Symphony League’s 2018 Marjorie Stricken Emerging Artists Competition.

Last year, Kingma was invited to perform a selection from Liszt’s “Album d’un Voyageur” at the American Liszt Society’s annual festival held at Furman University.

The assistant professor of piano at Palm Beach Atlantic University is represented in North America by Elegy Artist Management.
