Pianist Teresa Walters Inaugurates New Hayworth Fine Arts Center
High Point Enterprise, High Point, NC

“Pianist Teresa Walters performs the opening recital at the new Hayworth Fine Arts Center at 7:30 pm on Friday. The new concert hall was designed by Buckingham Palace architect Christopher Smallwood, and is destined to become one of North Carolina’s leading performing arts venues. The renowned pianist performs throughout the world and recently performed to high accolades at Lincoln Center in New York. Her recent international tours have included Austria, Hungary, Australia, Japan and Israel, where a reviewer from the Jerusalem Post described her artistry as “Marvelous! As close to perfect as I hope to hear.” Her newest CD has been nominated for the Grand Prix du Disque of the Hungarian Liszt Society. 

Walters received the recent tribute of performing three European recitals honoring the anniversary of composer Franz Liszt’s birthday, including a performance at the famous Esterhazy Palace in Austria under the patronage of the present governing Prince Anton Esterhazy. At the composer’s birthplace in Raiding, her concert was televised by Austrian National Television which described Walters as “one of the world’s most significant pianists.” The concert at the Hayworth Center is part of her intense international concert tour schedule this season. Her program will include works by Beethoven, Gershwin, and Liszt. The concert is underwritten by a grant from friends of the University. Tickets may be secured at Slane University Center or the Hayworth Center Box Office.”
