BERLIN — Pianists William Ogmundson will be performing at St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m. Ogmundson is in the process of developing his show, but is likely to include selections by Scott Joplin, Gotschalk and Gershwin.
Ogmundson is an Emmy-nominated composer, and according to a release submitted by the art center, he is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest pianists in New England. He has built a career around piano performance and is best known for his interpretations of ragtime music while also making a name for himself as a composer and lyricist.
Ogmundson began performing at age 5, and went on to win numerous piano competitions throughout his school years. During this time period, he was the featured pianist for the New Hampshire Music Festival Orchestra on four separate occasions. In addition to regular performances in New Hampshire and the surrounding states, he has performed at venues throughout Europe, including the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, where he was honored to have been the organist for a Sunday morning mass.
With sponsorship from Bryant Funeral Homes, tickets for this performance are $12 for adults and $10 for children under 18. Tickets are available online, at the door on the evening of the concert or at the art center’s office at 155 Emery St., Berlin.
