Our inaugural season of Wednesdays @ One performances resumes at the historic Baker Community Center.
Pianist and educator Janna Williamson reflects upon the well-loved, mysterious and misunderstood Franz Schubert and his compositions. Janna’s presentation will explore questions of meaning in the composer’s music and how known biographical information and historical context can inform our understanding. She will look to texts of Schubert’s most beloved songs and discuss how trends in his music set to poetry can give listeners clues to what significance might be found in his instrumental works, particularly those for solo piano. Janna Williamson holds piano performance degrees from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and Wheaton College Conservatory of Music.
Wednesdays @ One events are made possible by a generous contribution from Colonial Cafe restaurants.
