Jenny Lin is one of the most respected young pianists today, admired for her adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence.

She has been acclaimed for her “remarkable technical command” and “a gift for melodic flow” by The New York Times, and The Washington Post praises her “confident fingers” and “spectacular technique, and called Lin “surely one of the most interesting pianists in America right now.”

Philip Glass has composed more than 25 operas, large and small; 12 symphonies; three piano concertos; concertos for violin, piano, timpani, and saxophone quartet, and orchestra; plus string quartets and a growing body of work for solo piano and organ.

His soundtracks for films range from new scores for the stylized classics of Jean Cocteau to Errol Morris's documentary about former defense secretary Robert McNamara. He has collaborated with Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Yo-Yo Ma, and Doris Lessing, among many others.

Tickets are $20 general admission, with children under 12 free. They may be purchased from the Brattleboro Music Center at 802-257-4523 or online at, or at the door.
