Joel Schoenhals, piano
Fantasies of Schubert and Schumann
Friday March 13 @ 8:00 PM
"Schoenhals awakens Schubert's exuberance, lifts it from piercing melancholy to ecstatic flight..." "Schoenhals is passionate...impetuous...radiant. There's abundant pleasure to be found here." ~Fanfare
Steinway Artist and Professor of Piano at Eastern Michigan University, Joel Schoenhals has endeared himself to Southeast Michigan audiences through nearly 100 salon-style house concerts in private homes reaching thousands of people over the past seven years.
