The pianist will play a program he calls “Piano Cosmos” that spans five centuries, from Bach’s Wachet auf (as arranged by Busoni) to a world premiere by SUNY New Paltz faculty member Nkeiru Okoye. He will also perform Joan Tower’s Ivory and Ebony and works by George Crumb and Bela Bartok.

The concert will be followed by a reception with the artist. Tickets are $30 ($10 for students) and can be ordered by calling 845-765-3012 or at howlandmusic.org. The cultural center is located at 477 Main St.
