Piano Parnassus

Joseph Kingma, piano

4 pm Sunday, May 19

One of America’s most exciting emerging artists -- and a Hershey native -- Joseph Kingma was winner of the First Prize in the 2017 American Liszt Society International Piano Competition. “Mr. Kingma’s playing exemplified everything that a recital performance should be: thrilling virtuosity and eloquent lyricism. He was able to communicate all the passion and dramatic power of the music, but never at the expense of clarity and beauty of tone.”
