Oklahoma City Community College’s (OCCC) Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater will host the “International First Lady of Piano” Teresa Walters Thursday, May 2, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available at tickets.occc.edu or the OCCC Box Office.

Teresa Walters began playing the piano at the age of 4 and has been described as the “International First Lady of Piano” by The New York Times because her mesmerizing performances on international stages have earned worldwide praise. Walters has traveled the world performing in venues on six continents, including Carnegie Hall in New York, Wigmore Hall in London and Moscow’s Great Hall.

Walters has sold out venues around the world. She was the first American pianist invited to present three anniversary concerts in honor of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt's birthday. The invitations included performances at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music and the Liszt Museum in Budapest as well as at Liszt's birthplace in Raiding. Walters is known to be one of the finest interpreters of Liszt performing and recording today.

Austrian National Television described Walters as, “One of the world’s most significant pianists, she creates magic with the music.”

Walters earned her doctorate from the Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University and currently resides in New York City with her husband. For more information on Walters, visit teresawalters.com.
