Piano Virtuoso Performs
The Bergenite

Internationally acclaimed concert pianist Teresa Walters, whose new CD has just been
nominated for the "Grand Prix du Disque", will perform in recital at the College of Saint
Elizabeth in Morristown on Thursday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Octagon of Mahoney Library. The renowned pianist is scheduled to perform the same program in India for earthquake relief efforts. Walters recently became the first American pianist invited to perform three prestigious 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 who described her as "one of the world's most significant pianists." Her performances received standing ovations and generated the highest tribute given by European audiences, the rhythmic clap.

Teresa Walters' Morristown recital is part of an intense international schedule that includes performances throughout the U.S. and Canada, a Mexico debut in Monterrey
in March and a concert tour of India in May. Her performances in India are under
the sponsorship of Trans World Radio India and include a benefit concert for the Good
Samaritans Children's School in New Delhi, a benefit in Ahmedabad for earthquake victims as well as performances with the Bombay Symphony at the National Center for the Performing Arts.
