Pianist and professor May Phang, a member of the DePauw University School of Music faculty, will perform a February 27 concert at Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas.  The recital will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Cole Concert Hall and is part of the SFA School of Music's Calliope Concert Series.

Andrew Parr, professor of piano at SFA, met Phang in 2016 when he was attending the Interharmony Chamber Music Festival in Arcidosso, Italy. "I heard her play and worked with some of her students,'" Parr said. "She is an excellent pianist, and I am pleased that she could come to SFA."
