Pianist Juanita Madland
Los Alamos Arts Council (LAAC) presents Juanita Madland performing, via a musical recording, pieces from Bach, Mozart, Chopin and others noon Wednesday for the Brown Bag Performance Series.
This music is from one of six concerts Madland performed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Since age 3, Madland has played hundreds of concerts in the USA, Carribbean and Europe. Just some of her winning contests were the New Mexico concerto competition with Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto. She was the only New Mexican asked to enter the Cliburn contest in Dallas, as well as three Cliburn YouTube contests. Her photo was on the front page of the New York Times. She tied first place in the Albuquerque International; she was the winning director for a USO (United Service Organization) competition. Madland performed in Antwerp’s Peter Paul Rubens house and at the Italian branch of the Salzburg Mozarteum. She won two Ted Mack contests.
Madland also is a Professional Music Teachers of New Mexico winner; she is a nationally certified Teacher of Music in Piano and is certified to teach violin and voice. She also teaches organ and harpsichord. She taught a UNM-LA and kindergarten through grade 12 for 18 years and has taught untold numbers of private students since age 14.
Los Alamos Arts Council will present its next Brown Bag show April 21. It will be a recorded performance with Dan Nebel playing the French horn along with members of his group, Sunday Five Winds.
