Schmitt to play sonatas at Tabor faculty recital

Sheila Schmitt will present a faculty piano recital at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb., 7, in the Tabor College Chapel-Auditorium.

Schmitt will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Sonata in C Major, Op. 2, No. 3 and Johannes Brahms’ Sonata in F Minor, Op. 5.

“My original intention for the program was to follow the stylistic growth of the sonata form, starting with the classical era,” she said.

The public is invited to attend.

Schmitt is assistant professor of piano and piano pedagogy at Tabor. She received a doctorate of musical arts in piano performance from the University of Kansas, a master’s of music in piano performance and pedagogy from University of Colorado and a bachelor of music degree from Houghton College.

She has also studied in Germany and at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, England. Her primary instructors have included Jack Winerock, Richard Angeletti, C. Nolan Huizenga, Robert Spillman and Doloras Gadevsky.

Schmitt continues to perform as soloist and accompanist for various recitals and has often served as an adjudicator and clinician.
