Duo Piano Recital to feature American compositions

The El Camino College Campus Theatre will be hosting a “Duo Piano Recital” on Wednesday, June 8 at 8 p.m., according to the El Camino Center for the Arts’ website.

The recital will be a collaboration between ECC faculty member, Valerie Stern, and guest pianists, Susan Kim-Pedroza and Karen Spurney, focusing on American music written by American composers.

“Most of the program is a piano duo and I’m also doing some solo stuff,” Stern said.

The program will include work by composers George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Queen and an arrangement of Three Waltz’s from Disney films.

“I usually like to combine under-represented composers with stuff people know,” Stern said. “None of the music in the program is super serious; it’s all a little bit of fun.”

Tickets for the recital cost $10 for students and $15 for non-students and can be purchased at the Center for the Arts’ website, or by calling (310) 329-5345.
