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 (UPDATE: Recital has been postponed due to the performer’s illness)..

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

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.
