At December’s concert, a goodwill offering of cash or nonperishable food and items will be accepted to benefit the Caring Center of Boone County. The Caring Center is a multiprogram, not-for-profit organization in Boone County, serving hundreds of needy families and thousands of individuals annually through the dedication of scores of volunteers.

Hailed as “wonderfully poetic” (Westfalen Post), “exuberant yet sensitive” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), and “very compelling in his power and presence” (International Composer), pianist Nathan Carterette has distinguished himself in the concert world by performing a huge range of works from Elizabethan keyboard music to music written today. His innovative, approachable “Poets of the Piano” narrative-recital has inspired audiences to approach unfamiliar music with open ears, and familiar music with new appreciation.

Appearing as soloist, Carterette has been presented in such venues as Weill Recital Hall and the Yamaha Piano Salon of New York City, the Gasteig in Munich, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe of Hamburg, Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral, and Pittsburgh’s Rodef Shalom, and in several universities, such as the Berklee School of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, Baldwin Wallace Conservatory, Busan National University of South Korea, and Carnegie-Mellon.

Educated at Yale University, where he studied with Boris Berman, and University of Missouri–Kansas City, where he studied with Robert Weirich, Carterette began his piano studies at the age of eleven with Cleveland’s legendary Birute and Anthony Smetona. A chance encounter in 2004 with Welsh composer-pianist Dafydd Llywelyn led to an invitation for intensive private study in Munich, where Carterette studied and performed for three years.

Carterette, together with organist Edward Alan Moore, form The Arsenal Duo. They have performed many concerts throughout the country, from their 2013 debut in the historic Stambaugh Auditorium in Youngstown, Ohio; they were also featured performers there for the 2017 American Guild of Organists Great Lakes Regional Convention.
