Michael McQuay will present free piano recital Feb. 23 at BYU

Michael McQuay, a doctoral student of piano performance and literature at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, will present a piano recital Saturday, Feb. 23, at 1:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall at Brigham Young University.

Admission to this concert is free. This recital was originally scheduled for Jan. 26.

He will present “Faschingsschwank from Vienna” Op. 26 by Robert Schumann and Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24 by Johannes Brahms. This is the same program McQuay will present to the doctoral committee members at Indiana University.

McQuay is a native of Provo and a graduate of BYU. While working on his bachelor’s degree in piano performance at BYU, McQuay worked as part of the adjunct piano faculty and held the C.H. Nye Piano Performance Scholarship.

While completing a master’s degree in music performance at Indiana University he was awarded the Dean’s Scholarship and an Association Instructorship, the highest financial award offered to piano performance graduate students, which includes an appointment to the piano faculty.

When McQuay earned his master’s degree in 2008 he was one of three students admitted to the doctor of music in piano performance and literature degree program at Indiana University, considered one of the most extensive and respected doctoral programs in the nation. McQuay is also an assistant to Professor Menahem Pressler, founder of the legendary Beaux Arts Trio and well-known pianist and teacher.
