Dr. Stijn De Cock joined the UWSP faculty just when the CWSO's new concert grand piano was installed in Sentry's Theater @1800. He graciously performed the Liszt "Totentanz" to showcase the capabilities of the piano. Dr. De Cock will be leaving Stevens Point for a faculty position at Florida State University at the end of the academic year. We are honored to have him once again demonstrate his artistry on our magnificent piano, performing Tchaikovsky's lush "Piano Concerto No. 1" on April 22 and 23. Please enjoy Dr. De Cock's YouTube recording of "Totentanz," then do yourself a favor and visit cwso.org for your tickets to the CWSO's last concerts of the season! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoDT2NsWstM

Here's a fascinating look into the world of a professional musician, teacher and student - http://digg.com/video/eye-tracking-pianist And, as a reminder, Dr. Stijn DeCock will perform with the CWSO on April 22 and 23 - this video may influence how you 'hear' a professional pianist!
