We are pleased to announce that Dr. Rebecca McCord has returned from her travels abroad and will be scheduling a monthly visit to Valley View. Her plans are to entertain residents and family members with her favorite pieces and our requests. Dr. McCord will be joining us on Wednesday, May 7th.
Rebecca is a multi-faceted pianist, having performed as solo recitalist, chamber musician, duo pianist, and soloist with orchestra in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Making her debut at the age of nine, Dr. McCord has made guest artist appearances with over thirty orchestras including Dallas, Oklahoma City, Wichita, Houston, Eastman Philharmonic, Rome Festival and Tanglewood under such prestigious conductors as Erich Leinsdorf, Sir John Barbirolli, David Effron, Guy Fraser Harrison and Max Rudolf. As a young pianist, she was prizewinner in over twenty competitions. Dr. McCord has premiered a number of works written expressly for her.
In 2013, Dr. McCord retired after 28 years on the music faculty at Sweet Briar College, being named Professor Emerita; she continues to perform and adjudicate internationally.
We look forward to this exciting time of entertainment here at Valley View.
Dr. McCord will be entertaining us in December with a Christmas Carol sing-along, in January with Winter songs and Love songs in February.
