World-Class Harpsichordist to Perform at Thiel College

Harpsichordist and conductor Jory Vinikour will perform for the spring 2018 Con Spirito concert on March 26.

Chicago, Paris, Prague, Warsaw and … and Greenville, Pa.? What leads world-class harpsichordist Jory Vinikour to add Thiel College to his world-class itinerary?

Answer: The Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series, which has been hosting world-renown performers at Thiel College – located just 90 minutes from Downtown –  for more than a decade.

Many well-known performers have discovered they belong at the renowned, small liberal arts school when they perform at the Con Spirito Music Concert Series. Each performance of the series is always free and open to the public.

Vinikour will perform for the spring 2018 Con Spirito concert at 7 p.m. March 26.

Vinikour is recognized as one of the most outstanding harpsichordists of his generation. He was born in Chicago and came to Paris on a Fulbright Scholarship to study with Huguette Dreyfus and Kenneth Gilbert. His career takes him to the world’s most important festivals, concert halls, and opera houses all over the world, and now … to Thiel College.
