Elegant European music from the Baroque and Romantic periods will fill the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Chapel of all Faiths at 7 p.m. on March 3 when ABAC presents the First Tuesday Concert.

Dr. Susan Roe, Head of the ABAC Department of Fine Arts, said the event is a part of the 18thseason of the First Tuesday Concert Series where various artists are highlighted on five selected first Tuesdays during the year.  The public is invited to attend at no charge.

Dr. Zheng Jennifer Huang will be playing multiple pieces on the harpsicord and piano during this concert.  She has performed in solo and chamber music ensembles in Asia, Europe, and the United States. Currently, she is an assistant professor of music at ABAC, teaching piano and general music courses.     

During her time as a concert pianist, she was the second-prize winner of the 1996 Hong Kong Open Piano competition for Asian Musicians. She has been a visiting artist for both the Xi’an Conservatory of Music in China and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

As a concert harpsichordist, Huang has been mentioned in a New York Times review as a performer “with a rhythmic fluidity that conveyed (the) essential characteristic.”

Pieces on the program include Scarlatti’s Sonata in D major and minor, Chopin’s Fantasy Impromptu, Op. 66, and Bach’s Toccata in E Minor.
