Please join Dr. Philip Adamson and the piano faculty in welcoming Windsor-native and internationally respected pianist Darrett Zusko to the School of Music’s Recital Hall for an intimate performance of works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt (program details below) on Friday, March 2, 2012, 7:30 pm. We describe this performance as intimate because the recital hall seats an audience of 66 -- every seat will be close to the soloist.
Tickets are $20 per person. Call 519-253-3000 ext. 4212 or ext. 4213 to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets available at the Music Box Office, Rm 117 and at the door. Seating is limited.
This is a Benefit Concert for Music Scholarships!

Mr. Zusko continues to be heard regularly on CBC Radio and has also been broadcast a number of times on NPR in the United States.

A graduate of Juilliard, Darrett Zusko was born in Windsor in 1984. He took an interest in piano at an early age, and began his formal training with Dr. E. Gregory Butler. After a number of years of study, he went on to work privately with Ronald Turini at the University of Western Ontario, before ultimately deciding to further pursue his training in New York with Julian Martin. Subsequently, he studied intensively with Marc Durand in Toronto and in master classes with Leon Fleisher. In addition to his primary teachers, Mr. Zusko has also had the opportunity to work with a number of distinguished figures in the music world, including Anton Kuerti, Marek Jablonski, and Dominique Weber -- all of whom he considers to have played important roles in his development as an artist.
