Barbara Nissman to perform in Lewisburg Saturday, Charleston Tuesday

Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg will be the venue for world-renowned pianist Barbara Nissman’s Saturday performance of “Schubert Goes Fishing.” The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m., and will feature the popular “Trout” Quintet.

The Culture Center in Charleston will present the final concert of the three-part concert series called “Music Classic,” featuring Pianist Barbara Nissman, a Steinway Living Legend, and a 2023 inductee into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame. The concert will take place on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at 6 p.m. in the Culture Center State Theater, located on the campus of the West Virginia State Capitol Complex. These informal one-hour programs will be presented without an intermission. The Concerts are free and open to the public.

Barbara, a resident of Lewisburg, has invited West Virginia chamber musicians to join her on stage for the final program “Schubert goes Fishing!” that includes Schubert’s popular favorite, the “Trout” Piano
Quintet. In the first part of the program Barbara will introduce the audience to the young Franz Schubert – a true poet of the piano and perform several of her favorite works including his Wanderer Fantasy, a
composition that Schubert had tried to perform but never did because it was too difficult! 

“I am so looking forward to returning to the stage of the Culture Center and bringing along some of my West Virginia musician friends to share the magic of music with all of you,” states Nissman. “This is a series for everyone—all that’s required is an open heart to enjoy and to feel the passion.”
