Tuesday, June 13 @7:30pm: Printempo – Wilson Poffenberger

This last recital of the Printempo series will feature Wilson Poffenberger, one this year’s Harriet Hale Woolley music scholars. His concert program Paths of Obscurity is a musical reflection of his experience living and studying in Paris: through many struggles and many successes, his path has been both obscure and clear.
