About the Artist
Praised for the “…grace and sensitivity” of her playing as well as her enthusiastic teaching, pianist Ann DuHamel serves as Head of Keyboard Studies at the University of Minnesota, Morris. An ardent proponent of modern music, she has enjoyed working with several contemporary composers including Lowell Liebermann and Christopher Marshall as well as commissioning works from award-winning composers Marc Chan, Joseph Dangerfield and Edie Hill. She premiered one of these new works at the 12th Annual International Saxophone Conference in Mexico City, where her playing and teaching was described as “… a delight for the ears and the soul.”
Recent engagements include an invitation to perform at the national College Music Society conference in Santa Fe, NM; a program of French music with cellist Charles Asch; an upper Midwest tour of Winterreise with baritone Stephen Swanson; and a European tour of American music with saxophonist Preston Duncan. Past performances include two appearances in Carnegie Weill Recital Hall.
