On Tuesday, November 29th, Limestone College will continue its Steinway piano series with a performance by Ukranian-American pianist and Steinway artist Marina Lomazov.

Her performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the College's Fullerton Auditorium and will be followed by a reception with the artist in the Winnie Davis Hall of History. Both events are free and open to the public.

Steinway artists like Lomazov are endorsed by the renowned Steinway & Sons Company and perform exclusively on Steinway pianos.

Lomazov has established herself as one of the most passionate and charismatic performers on the concert scene today.  Following prizes in numerous international competitions, she has performed throughout North America, South America, England, France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, Japan and in most of the U.S.

As orchestral soloist, Lomazov has performed with the Boston Pops Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic (NY), South Carolina Philharmonic, Charleston Symphony (SC), Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Ohio Chamber Orchestra, Graz Höchschulorchester (Austria), Bollington Festival Orchestra (England), and the Chernigoff Symphony Orchestra (Ukraine).

The Steinway piano series is Limestone's way of showcasing its fully restored 1969 Steinway "D" piano. Located in Fullerton Auditorium, Limestone's Steinway was literally dissected into pieces at the Steinway & Sons facility on Long Island, NY during its restoration. The intensive process lasted nine months and cost over $50,000.

"I cannot say enough about this incredible opportunity to see world renowned performers such as Maria Lomazov free right here in Gaffney," said Dr. David Thompson, Professor of Music at Limestone. "She has made quite a name for herself throughout the world in a relatively short amount of time, and her performance at Limestone promises to be nothing more than stunning."

The remainder of the four-performance series is as follows:
  • Emile Pandolfi (Steinway Artist), March 6
  • The Manhattan Piano Trio, April 19
