IMG_6008_FINAL IMG_6008_FINALHi There,
Hope you had a nice weekend.  I did a big 2 hour bike ride on the beach – so fun!  Back to work today!  I’m getting really excited about my upcoming performances – practicing away has been a lot of fun, but of course that’s what pianists enjoy doing!  I really like the music a lot, and I hope everyone else will too.  Here are the dates and times again – PLEASE pass the information to any friends that you have in these cities who might be interested, and please encourage anyone to bring students – I love playing for all ages.

-LISA HILTON PERFORMS NOCTURNAL: March 4, 2016/Friday 8pm Pepperdine University, Malibu/CA (310) 506-4522   About this event:
Critically acclaimed composer/pianist Lisa Hilton debuts new compositions from her 2016 release, NOCTURNAL in this solo piano show. Hilton’s impressionistic “sound paintings” continue to explore the soundscape of jazz and blues alongside classical, modernist, and avant-garde ideas. This performance includes her beautiful and evocative, “Midnight Sonata,” which expresses the classical form merging with the freedom of American jazz and blues. Hilton,“has been compared to some of the best pianists in history.”   Don’t miss this exciting solo piano performance and check out for yourself what DownBeat calls, “A deeply expressive style.”  Students of all ages encouraged.  Adults: $25 Student tickets $10.
