Solon Pierce will bring his love for music to Fuller Lodge at noon Tuesday, as he performs during the Brown Bag Series concert. Pierce was born in Plymouth, Wisc. and began playing piano when he was 10 years old.
“My mother started my brother and myself playing piano,” Pierce said. “We started out having lessons before school at 7 a.m.”
He went on to receive his bachelor’s degree from Oberlin College, where he worked with Robert McDonald. He also holds a master’s degree from The Juilliard School, where he worked with Jerome Lowenthal and Abbey Simon.
Pierce has done further studies with Howard Karp at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Grant Johannesen and Diane Walsh at the Mannes College of Music. He completed doctoral work at the University of Minnesota, where he worked with Alexander Braginsky.
Pierce has performed frequently in his native Wisconsin, including appearances with the Festival City Symphony of Milwaukee and the Madison Symphony, and in television and radio broadcasts for Wisconsin Public Radio, to include, “Sunday Afternoon Live from the Elvehjem,” Iowa Public Radio, Radio Denmark in Copenhagen and the WFMT network, Chicago.
