Thursday, January 10, 2002

SPARTANBURG, SC—The Lenti Piano Duo, critically acclaimed for their performances and recordings, will perform on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2002, at 7 p.m. in Wofford College’s Leonard Auditorium.

Anthony and Marianne Lenti’s performance, “Four Hands on One Piano,” is being funded by Wofford’s Cultural Affairs Committee; it is free and open to the public.

The Lentis have performed on four continents and are known for their eclectic musical tastes and on-stage repartee. The “Washington Times” has described them as “scintillating, shimmering.”

A product of Florence, Italy, the Lentis have performed in Wigmore Hall in London, the Grand Concert Hall in Warsaw, Il Centro Asteria in Milan, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and for the BBC. They have been featured alongside William Warfield, Itzhak Perlman, Bill Cosby, Michael York, Eugenie Zuckerman, Edward Vilella and the Urban Bush Women.

The two, both of whom have doctorate degrees, are in residence at Lander University in Greenwood, S.C., and have served many years as artist performers/teachers at the S.C. Governor’s School for the Arts and as faculty at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan.
