Anthony Tobin will perform at TAMIU Sunday, April 15.

Internationally acclaimed Dr. Anthony Tobin will return to Texas A&M International University to perform as the next pianist in the Steinway Series, Sunday, April 15 at 3 p.m. in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The program includes music composed by Domenico Scarlatti, W.A. Mozart, Alberto Ginastera and Claude Debussy.

Dr. Tobin has performed across the U.S., Canada, The Netherlands and in Brazil, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the U.K. He tours as a soloist, chamber musician and as a pianist for eurythmy—an art form that combines dance, music, poetry and lights.

He graduated from Ithaca High School in New York and was a scholarship student at Tanglewood. Tobin studied piano with Malcolm Bilson at Cornell University, and won the Junior Baldwin Piano Competition.

Tobin received a Bachelor of Music with Distinction from the Eastman School of Music. He earned a Master of Music from the University of Southern California. He received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano from the University of Texas at Austin.

The Steinway Series is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Fernando A. Salinas Charitable Trust, Ann and George Neel and the TAMIU Housing and Residence Life.
