Lera Auerbach “…delivers lots of fire and passion in music. She offers 18th-century forms and a 19th-century sensibility (that of the brilliant virtuoso) expressed in a 21st-century vocabulary.” (Anne Midgette, WASHINGTON POST)

Lera is a poet, composer, concert pianist and visual artist. She has published more than 100 works for opera, ballet, orchestral and chamber music, and performs as concert pianist throughout the world. Her work is championed by leading artists, conductors, stage directors and choreographers, with recent works staged by the San Francisco Ballet, Stanislavsky Theater, Hamburg Opera, Theatre an der Wein, National Ballet of China, Finnish National Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, Netherlands Dance Theater, Semperoper and Staatskapelle Dresden, and New York’s Lincoln Center.

Lera is a regular contributor to the Best American Poetry blog, has published three books of poetry and prose in Russian, and is the author of several librettos. Prizes for her works include two Golden Masks, Echo Klassik and the Hindemith Prize. She holds degrees from the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media and The Juilliard School, where she received the P. and D. Soros Fellowship. The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, selected Lera in 2007 as a Young Global Leader and in 2014 as a Cultural Leader, where she lectured on borderless creativity, a fascinating topic that she also presented at the University of Michigan, Harvard University, the Open Society Institute and other venues.

Enjoy works by living composers in a fun, casual atmosphere. Pub Concerts are performed by the Garth Newel Piano Quartet in the middle of Herter Hall, immersed within the audience rather than separated by a stage. Enjoy a bite of delicious pub fare along with your favorite drink!
