ASU to feature Pianist Ian Hominick
on Feb. 24 at Fowler Center

Feb. 9, 2005--Pianist Ian Hominick will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 24, at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro in the Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive.

Hominick’s performance will be the fourth event of the 2004-05 Lecture~Concert Series.

A soloist, accompanist, adjudicator and teacher, Hominick maintains a schedule of concerts and piano master classes across the United States and Canada, including solo recitals in cities all over North America. He has appeared as a soloist on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, Chicago-Chautauqua Series and American Landmark Festivals.

He has been a featured guest for Saskatchewan’s Rites of Spring Festival, the Hornby Festival Society and the American Liszt Society Festival. His performances have been broadcast nationally on CBC Radio, Radio-Canada and National Public Radio in the United States.

Hominick began studying piano in his native country of Nova Scotia. He attended Mount Allison University in Nova Scotia, and then continued his studies in the United States under acclaimed pianists Jerome Rose and Earl Wild. He earned his doctorate of music degree from Ohio State University in 1991.

In 1995, he released a solo recording of the works of the legendary romantic pianist, Sigismund Thalberg, to glowing reviews and received a nomination for “Best Classical Recording” for his work on the album.

Hominick has been visiting artist at the University of Newfoundland, and has taught on the faculties of Otterbein College, the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, De Paul University and Lake Forest College. He joined the piano faculty at the University of Mississippi in 1999. 

A favorite among critics, Hominick was applauded by the Canadian University Music Review which stated: “He brings both sensitivity and a powerful technique to the performances.” The Yukon News stated: “”Hominick dazzled the audience as his hands effortlessly traversed the span of the keyboard…His performance was always engaging.”

Hominick’s performance is a joint presentation with the Department of Music.

The next Lecture~Concert Series event will be on Wednesday, March 9, with a performance by the Prairie Wind Dancers.

All Lecture~Concert programs are free and open to the public, presenting diverse programs to enrich the cultural life of the campus, community and region.
