Pianist Blair McMillen in Concert Friday, May 3, 7:30 p.m. | Fine Arts Building, Recital Hall Tickets: ArtsUAA.com or 786-4849

An evening with pianist Blair McMillen is a program unlike anything Anchorage audiences have heard in recent past. His programs are innovative, exploring the unusual, quirky, provocative, traditional and non-traditional, reinventing-the-wheel approach to music and performance.

Blair is an excellent musician but also an expert performance artist. He has the capability of making all audience members - from novice to advanced, from engaged to the highly skeptical - completely reframe their context for a musical performance. This concert promises to be a real barn burner!

  • Suite in E Minor (1724) // by Jean-Phillipe Rameau
