Pianist David Walters will present a “double bill” concert Sept. 24, of classical and jazz works as Bryan College presents the first of its Fine Arts Series for the new academic year.

 

Dr. Sigrid Luther, professor of music, said Mr. Walters “is back by popular demand. He always presents a wonderful mix of classical and jazz.”

 

Mr. Walters is on the piano faculties of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and the Cadek Conservatory of Music and has performed extensively at universities throughout the area. He also has performed as a soloist for the United States Governors Conference and for former President Gerald Ford. He and his jazz trio have performed three times at Chattanooga’s Riverbend Festival.

 

He is a member of the Tennessee Music Teachers Association and served as president of the Chattanooga Music Teachers Association.

 

Mr. Walters will be joined by Eric Reed, principal cellist of the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra and cellist of the CSO String Quartet, for two pieces.

 

Dr. Luther said Mr. Walters “has recovered from a long illness, so he is making a wonderful comeback as a performer and teacher.”

 

The free concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Rudd Auditorium.
