Bucks County Association of Piano Teachers Member Clipper Erickson Will Perform

Clipper writes:

For many years Nathaniel Dett's gorgeous and moving music has been a big part of my life. In January and February, I will celebrate his work in a series of programs, both solo and in collaboration with other fantastic musicians. These performances feature music that has been very close to my heart for a long time; Dett's Eight Bible Vignettes and Enchantment, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Schumann's Fantasy.

Clipper: "I will realize a dream to perform Dett's music at Westminster Choir College in collaboration with one of their world-renowned choral groups, a culmination of years of planning to recreate the kind of programs that Dett himself created, a combination of choral, piano solo and vocal solo music.

Last Monday, MLK day, I spoke about these performances during my interview and performance on WRTI Philadelphia.  Here is the link:
