The Classically Alive concert series, as part of Arts Month 2021, will feature “Pianist Abe Minzer in Concert.” The event will take place Friday, October 29 at 7PM at the Colorado Piano Warehouse, 120 W. Cucharras Street (serving the Pikes Peak region since 1995). Doors open at 6:00 PM. Masks required, vaccinations encouraged. Admission $25, includes a meet-the-artist reception with light refreshments. Reservations required, space limited.

The program will feature piano music from the German classical repertoire with works by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann. Opening with a short Bach Prelude and Fugue, Dr. Minzer will then perform Beethoven’s sublime late-period Piano Sonata No. 31 in A Flat, Op. 110. The first half concludes with a beautiful pair of less-heard late-period Schubert Impromptus. The second half consists of one major work- the early period, impassioned Robert Schumann “Grand Sonata” No. 1 in F# Minor, Op. 11, dedicated to Clara Wieck, the great pianist/composer who was later to become Robert Schumann’s wife.

Dr. Abe Minzer frequently performs in the Pikes Peak region and throughout the US as a piano soloist and chamber musician. He is on the music faculty of Pikes Peak Community College and University of Colorado Colorado Springs, where he teaches piano, music theory, music appreciation and music history. Founded by Abe Minzer in 2006, Classically Alive has hosted over 150 concerts in the Pikes Peak region featuring local musicians and visiting musicians from the US and abroad featuring classical, jazz, and music from around the world.
