"Every year I usually do
a concert at Carnegie Hall in New York. Every year I usually do a concert at Carnegie Hall
in New York. And, I just also love meeting the students. I’m
really looking forward to meeting the students and sharing my love of music
In a letter to the college,
Gibbons added that he “would love to be a part of that
community and help in any way--even if it means putting a piano on a flatbed
truck and going out into the rural areas.”
Gibbons will perform a free public concert this Sunday at 7:30pm at Davis & Elkins’s Harper-McNeeley
Auditorium, during student orientation. You can hear an interview with pianist Jack Gibbons on the Classically Speaking blog.
