Donna Coleman with Concord TrioA 1974 graduate of the IUP Music Department, pianist Donna Coleman has an upcoming performance in Los Angeles that is available through live stream.

Coleman is part of the Concord Trio, performing Sunday, September 2, 2018, in the Bing Theater of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Part of the museum’s Sundays Live series, the performance can be viewed at the time of the concert (6:00 p.m.) on the Mixlr website and will be available for one week following the event on the University of Southern California’s public radio website.

The Concord Trio, also featuring Endre Balogh on violin and Antony Cooke on cello, will perform Clara Schumann’s Trio in G minor, Op. 17 and Ravel’s Trio in A minor.

Coleman is best known for her interpretations of the music of Charles Ives, with two acclaimed recordings on the Et’Cetera (Amsterdam) label.

A dual US and Australian citizen, Coleman spent more than two decades as head of keyboard at the Victorian College of the Arts. She has produced dozens of world concert tours and direct broadcasts for ABC Classic FM, and she started her OutBach project, which creates performances in unexpected locations and combinations, including the first piano and didgeridoo collaborations.

She recorded two compact discs for ABC Classics, Rags to Riches: A Syncopated Century and Havana to Harlem, and her own label, OutBach, released Don’t Touch Me, the Danzas Cubanas by Ignacio Cervantes (2010) and The Lost Lady (2015). In November 2018, she will produce the first OutBach Festival of [Mostly] American Music in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and will perform with the Concord Trio her scripted version of Charles Ives’s “Concord Sonata.”
