Carleen Graff, professor of piano and piano pedagogy at Plymouth State College, will perform a recital at 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 28 at the College. The program includes works by Beethoven, Shostakovich and Filtsch. Carl Filtsch died at the age of 15, but studied for about a year with Chopin. His pieces are very much in the Chopin style, according to Graff, who heard the pieces in Munich last fall while on sabbatical leave in Germany.

Graff holds a D.A. in piano performance and pedagogy, an M.A. in applied piano, and a B.M.E. A frequent adjudicator for competitions and evaluations throughout the U.S. and Canada, she has performed solo and chamber recitals in New England, the Midwest and Germany. She is the founder of the biennial Piano Monster Concerts, the summer Junior and Senior Piano Monster Festivals and the 20th Century Piano Festival at PSC. In addition, she directs the Plymouth Digital Keyboard Ensemble for young students, teaches pre-college piano students and oversees the on-campus piano instruction of area children and youth.

The recital will be held free of charge in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Cultural Arts Center on Main Street in Plymouth.
