PBS’ pianist Bruce Adolphe to perform at Vineville United Methodist Church

Bruce Adolphe will perform Sunday at Vinville United Methodist Church.


Composer Bruce Adolphe will be performing Sunday at Vineville United Methodist Church as part of the church’s Music and the Arts series.

Adolphe has performed his “Piano Puzzlers” weekly on public radio since 2002, and Vineville director of music Dennis McCleary expects the performance to include a few puzzlers, in which Adolphe takes a familiar tune and puts it in the style of a classical composer and calls someone to see if he or she can guess the song.

“He is a very accomplished pianist and has to be able to play both styles of music to do that. It is a dual talent that must be amazing,” McCleary said. “He does a lot of lecturing and will also talk about music, what to listen for and how to create it.”

Adolphe’s music has been performed worldwide by artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, the Washington National Opera and many more, according to a news release.

“For people who listen to public radio, this is an occasion to meet him and hear what he does live,” McCleary said, adding that Adolphe also will be presenting a master class at 10 a.m. Jan. 27 at Mercer University.
