Sunday concert features Summit County pianist Ian Parker

Daily News staff report
Ian Parker

A recent graduate of Summit High School, Ian Parker will perform a concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church in Dillon. Ian graduated from SHS in May and is well recognized for his musical accomplishments as well as his passion for skiing.

There is no admission charge to this concert, and all are welcome.

The program Ian has selected for Sunday’s concert will include something for all music lovers from the classic “Prelude and Fugue in C Minor” by J.S. Bach and the heart-tugging “Pathetique Sonata” by Beethoven to the much-loved “Clair de Lune” by Debussy, “Fantasie Impromptu” by Chopin and two preludes by Gershwin.

Ian has grown up in Summit County and studied piano for 11 years under the instruction of Adrienne Sielaff. During this time, he competed in several state festivals, and the Piano Guild of America, receiving several Superior ratings

Ian will attend the University of Denver in the fall to pursue a dual degree in music and education, planning to explore music, acoustics and science. After college, he hopes to either get a teaching job in a high school music program, or continue his education in order to become a neurologist

A musician with a wide range of talent, Ian also plays the viola, mallet percussion, clarinet, and saxophone. When not playing music, he is probably skiing or riding his bike. He recently won the SkiMeister award (best combined alpine and Nordic athlete) for the state of Colorado, and was recognized by the Denver Post as the Athlete of the Week.

This free concert is being offered by the Summit Music and Arts at LOTM which provides outstanding performances to audiences in Summit County throughout the concert year.
