CC’s Bowed Piano Ensemble Featured in NY Times

Adding to an already long list of accomplishments, the internationally acclaimed Bowed Piano Ensemble was featured in the New York Times last week as the group headed to New York for their performance on Saturday in the Allen Room.  Founded and directed by CC Professor of Music Stephen Scott, the Bowed Piano Ensemble and its small orchestra of ten student performers has five recordings and has played its beautiful, unique melodies in some of the world’s most renowned venues such as the Sydney Opera House and the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels.

As mentioned in the New York Times article, Saturday night was likely  the final performance for the Bowed Piano Ensemble in New York.  After 36 years as director, Professor Scott plans to retire at the end of this academic year.  During his tenure, Stephen has led the ensemble on eight European tours, three Australian tours, and received a number of awards including a Barlow Endowment Commission, a grant from the Peter S. Reed Foundation, the New England Conservatory/Rockefeller Foundation Chamber Music Prize, and a National Endowment for the Arts Composer’s Fellowship.
