Event Details

Please join us on Sunday, May 7 at 4pm in Allen Hall at Community Music Center of Boston for an exclusive concert by former Music Center faculty member John Ferguson for Lapin Club and Legacy & Innovation Society Members and their guests. Following the concert, there will be a light reception for members and guests to socialize and meet with the musician.


John Ferguson’s performances have been praised for their “proselytizing zeal--along with fleet fingers, power, and fine dynamic control” (Boston Globe) and “impressive qualities of pianistic brilliance, strength, intellect and sensitivity” (Sacramento Bee). Ferguson has performed solo recitals in major cities throughout the US, including concert series’ and festivals in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, San Diego, and Providence. Ferguson’s performances have been heard on radio stations WFMT-Chicago, WMBC-Baltimore, KZSU-Palo Alto, KUOP-Stockton, and WFIU-Bloomington.

Currently his recital programs feature some of the most difficult and epic works in the keyboard literature, including Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” Sonata, Bach’s Art of Fugue, and Rzewski’s The People United Will Never be Defeated. Ferguson’s performances have also included such rarities as Liszt’s arrangements of Beethoven’s symphonies, music from the renaissance and middle ages, and a wide range of contemporary music, including his own compositions. This repertoire is sometimes presented in “multimedia” concerts, integrated with visual art, dance, and theater.

Ferguson is an active chamber musician in the Boston area, having performed at Jordan Hall, the Longy School of Music, Boston Conservatory, and Boston University among other venues. These concerts include collaborations with violinist Jennifer Frautschi, trumpeter Stephen Burns, trombonists Scott Hartman and Norman Bolter, and hornist Eric Ruske. As an orchestral soloist, he has recently appeared with the Melrose Philharmonic, North Shore Philharmonic, Atlantic Union College Orchestra and Mozart Society Orchestra at Harvard University.
