Ganz, a member of the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory and St. Mary’s College of Maryland, also serves as artistic director for the UUCA Arts in the Woods-classics series. The next Arts in the Woods concert features pianist George Bowerman on Sunday, September 1 at 3pm. Award winning Bowerman combines superb artistry with illuminating and often humorous commentary about the works he performs.

The August 18 celebratory event completes one year of fundraising to acquire a concert quality instrument which was researched and selected by Mr. Ganz. Numerous donors made the purchase possible and a special donor event will precede the concert, beginning at 2:00pm.
