Lyceum Series continues with minimalist pianist

Andrew Granade, a musicologist and pianist specializing in modern American music, will continue Harding University’s Lyceum Series with a concert and workshop Nov. 15.

The free workshop, to be held at 3 p.m. in Reynolds Recital Hall, will give an introduction to minimalism as it relates to popular media and music. Following the workshop, Granade will perform in the Administration Auditorium at 7 p.m.

An assistant professor of musicology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance, Granade earned his Ph.D. from University of Illinois. Granade’s performances and research presentations have taken him throughout the United States, China and England. He is currently completing “Harry Partch, Hobo Composer,” a study on how homelessness affected Partch’s music. Most recently, he has performed as a duo pianist with R. Andrew Lee as part of the Minimalism in Twelve Parts recital series.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert will be sold for $3 at the door. For more information, call the music department at 501-279-4343 or visit www.harding.edu/lyceum.
