JONESBORO – The Department of Music at Arkansas State University will present pianist Margery McDuffie Whatley in recital Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall (GPS: 2412 Quapaw Way).

Her program will include works by Haydn, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Gershwin.  Admission is free.

Whatley, a piano soloist and chamber musician, is a native of Macon, Ga.  With a strong interest in making classical music accessible to people of all ages and listening experiences, Whatley has presented a series of outreach programs throughout cities in Georgia, California, Iowa and Illinois.

Concerto appearances include the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, Macon Symphony Orchestra, Chicago’s Lake Shore Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta’s DeKalb Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Bremerton Symphony Orchestra.

She received her Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees in piano performance at the University of Southern California where she was named the most outstanding piano doctoral graduate. She received her Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Whatley’s three CDs, “Piano Reflections – Encore Favorites”; “Margery McDuffie Whatley plays Bach, Haydn, Brahms and Ravel”; and “From Mozart to Gershwin,” have received rave reviews from Fanfare Magazine and American Record Guide.  Her fourth solo CD, “Piano Gems,” will be released this year.
