Raúl Prieto Ramírez

Colossally talented’ organist! With brilliance and bravado, elegance and energy, this young, Spanish-born artist has staked his claim among the world’s elite performers. Writes the Washington Post, “His fearless playing and, at times, brazen registrations give his eclectic programs a nervy, exciting flair so often lacking in (other) classical recitals.”

Special Venue: This concert is at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts (UW‑Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Drive Green Bay, WI 54311 ) to make use of the facility’s world-class, 3,700‑pipe organ.

Dynamic duo! Praised as “the gold standard,” these red-hot Juilliard alumni had their October 2016 recital at the National Gallery rated spectacular by the esteemed Washington Post: “(Greg) Anderson and (Elizabeth) Roe are the very model of complete 21st-century musicians. They fuse classical and pop music into a blend of high artistry and skillful entertainment… They are crack pianists…”

Venue change
