Faculty Artist Series

Cynthia Sanger

Dance and Imagery in the Piano Repertoire

Watch this innovative online performance of solo piano and dance by Cynthia Sanger, BMS piano faculty member.

Exploring multiple ways of imagining the intention of classical composers, Cynthia Sanger performs keyboard works by Robert Schumann (Carnival Jest from Vienna), Claude Debussy (Pour Le Piano Suite), J.S. Bach (French Suite), and Frederic Chopin (Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat minor) along with dance movement. The audience is encouraged to move as part of this interactive kinesthetic experience.

Online Learning

We're excited to be learning in new ways, focusing on, and appreciating music even more. The strength of our almost 100-year BMS teaching tradition comes from emphasizing the importance of student-faculty interactions and effective teaching methods that help our students learn and enjoy music.
