Dr. Hamilton Tescarollo, Director of Keyboard Studies at IPFW, (soon to be the Purdue-Fort Wayne School of Music), returns for the third time to Trinity’s Evensong Concert Series. As audience members of his previous concerts know, Dr. Tescarollo’s passion and virtuosity at the piano are stunning! Plan to attend this afternoon concert of magic at the piano.

Since his debut with the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra, pianist Hamilton Tescarollo has made solo and collaborative appearances in the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America. Recent performances have taken him to Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and a number of US states. A versatile musician who performs both the mainstream and the avant-garde repertory, he frequently includes the music of Brazil (his native country) and other Latin-American countries in his programs. His duo with cellist Carlos Audi (Audi-Tescarollo Duo) also focuses on South-American music and is currently recording a CD featuring that repertoire. With Venezuelan clarinetist Jorge Montilla, he recorded the CD “La Revoltosa” (Clarinet Classics), which features contemporary works by composers of both North and South America. He can also be heard on two CDs with saxophonist Farrell Vernon (Centaur Records).
A dedicated teacher, Tescarollo received the “Teacher of the Year” award at the 2001 Schimmel-AZ Piano Young Artist Piano Competition. His students have been prizewinners of many piano contests, including the Phoenix Symphony Guild Concerto Competition, Indianapolis Symphony Young Musicians Competition, Sewannee Summer Music Center Concerto Competition, Indiana Hoosier Auditions, and MTNA Competitions, among others. He has held teaching positions at Faculdade Santa Marcelina, The Municipal School of Music of São Paulo, and Arizona State University, and has also taught at the Saarburg International Music Festival in Germany. As Associate Professor of Music and Director of Keyboard Studies at IPFW, he teaches applied piano and piano-related courses and coordinates the piano and organ areas. He also teaches both young and professional pianists through the IPFW Community Arts Academy and directs the IPFW Gene Marcus Piano Camp and Competition. In addition, he regularly presents piano master classes both nationally and internationally and is a frequent competition adjudicator and lecturer.
Dr. Tescarollo holds Piano Performance degrees from Arizona State University (D.M.A. and M.M.) and Faculdade Santa Marcelina (B.M.), and a Piano Diploma from Escola Municipal de Música de São Paulo.
