From Alexander:

“I feel fortunate to present this event in connection with the international events that will be taking place on behalf of ClimateKeys. I will give the world premiere of my newest work, “Liquid Piano” (2017) as well as performances of several works by Debussy.”

“Founder Lola Perrin has really taken this effort to the next level and I invite you to take a look at ClimateKeys’ website www.climatekeys.com and have a read of the incredible testimonies on what this means to hundreds of scientists and numerous concert pianists around the world. The goal is to bring the conversation on climate change to new audiences. Please join us on November 8th in Eugene.”
