Freed-Hardeman University music professor Richard England presented two of his original piano “sketches” at the 40th annual conference of the College Music Society Southern Chapter February 28 - March 2, 2019. The University of Central Florida College of Arts and Humanities hosted the conference in Orlando.
England wrote three “sketches” as studies for his personal use in an effort to work on certain technical aspects of playing the piano. The music drew the attention of colleagues and others who enjoyed the melodic lines and intensity of the compositions. As a matter of personal preference, England chose to present Nos. 2 and 3 at the Saturday evening concert. This marked the first time he had presented solo works to a broader audience for performance.
England has completed degrees at Union University and Memphis State University with post-doctoral studies in psychology at University of Memphis and Austin Peay State University as well as additional studies in music at Berklee College of Music and the PianoSonoma workshop at Juilliard. His graduate piano work included studies with Herbert Hermann (late), Theodore Edel, and Joan Gilbert along with studies in music composition with Donald Freund.
