"Pianist Teresa Walters will perform in the Battelle Fine Arts Center at Otterbien University at 8 PM on Friday, October 26. Hailed as the International First Lady of Piano, Walters will perform best-loved works of several great composers, including Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, and Liszt’s Liebestraume. She will speak to the audience about the works before she performs each selection in a format known as her “Keynote Comments”.

Walters performs around the world on its great stages. Her tours in recent seasons include Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Australia, Russia, Japan, and Israel, where the music critic for the Jerusalem Post hailed her performance as "Marvelous; as close to perfect as I hope to hear."

Teresa Walters is noted for her commitment to music as the ultimate universal language and for her vision of music as ministry. At a recent performance as a soloist with a Russian orchestra, Walters received five curtain calls. Much closer to home, her Lincoln Center recital in New York was sold out and won her a standing ovation. The Washington Post wrote: "Teresa Walters is a splendid musician whose marvelous technical prowess and rich expressive resources create music of intimate introspection, orchestral grandeur and the most minute inflections of color."
