Astolfi to present Piano Concert Jan. 26
Piedmont College artist-in-residence and pianist Dr. Jeri-Mae G. Astolfi will perform works by three famed composers at 4pm on Sunday, January 26, in a free on-campus concert. Featured composers include Johann Sebastian Bach, Claude Debussy, and Ludwig Van Beethoven. The performance will be held at the Piedmont Chapel. Originally from Canada, Astolfi has previously served on the music faculty at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and at Henderson State University.
