Visiting artist: Igor Lipinski, piano
Polish-born pianist Igor Lipinski made his U.S. debut with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra on NPR's Performance Today. Graduate of Eastman School of Music and Northwestern University, Lipinski is an Assistant Professor of Piano at the University of Oklahoma where he continues to reimagine the traditional format of a piano recital. Lipinski's Piano Illusions took him across the world from Hong Kong to New York City, presenting his unique show of music and magic at festivals, concert halls, and symphony orchestras including Rochester Philharmonic and Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra. After the halt of his concert tour caused by COVID-19, he turned to recording, started his own record label Vanishing Records, and released his first album "Alchemy" available for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.
