Pianist Ivana Gavric makes Gilmore Rising Star debut

Sussie Ahlberg

Fresh off her U.S. debut in Washington, DC last week, pianist Ivana Gavric visits WMUK to talk about her Gilmore Rising Stars Series recital this Sunday at 4 pm in the Wellspring Theatre of the Epic Center in Kalamazoo.

In a conversation with host Cara Lieurance, Ms. Gavric, who at age 11 moved from Bosnia to Great Britain, tells of how music played an important role in adjusting to a new language and culture. She speaks eloquently on the music of Leos Janacek and of Edvard Grieg, whose music is the subject of her most recent studio release

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
