Pianist Rupert Egerton-Smith Performs at The Church

authorStaff Writer on Mar 3, 2024

Concert pianist Rupert Egerton-Smith, in collaboration with the Alexander & Buono Foundation, takes to The Church’s vaunted corridors on Saturday, April 27, at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.) to perform a program that includes Chopin, Gershwin, Mozart, Rachmaninoff and Scarlatti, as well as an improvisational piece inspired by The Church. Described as “particularly impressive” and noted for his superb musicality, Egerton-Smith gifts listeners with a performance of the highest caliber of solo instrumental, classical artistry that has garnered him praise from around the world.

After finishing a successful tour of the Middle East, which became the subject of a documentary titled “Evolve” by award-winning filmmaker Tony El Khoury, Egerton-Smith went on to tour extensively throughout the United Kingdom, playing at prestigious venues and receiving exaltations from audiences and critics alike. He comes to The Church after recently performing at Wiltshire’s Salisbury Cathedral, and an all-Gershwin program presented as part of his only New York City performance honoring the composer for The Lambs Foundation. Upcoming appearances include orchestral performances with the Bristol Classical Players, the Southbank Sinfonia, and an appearance as special guest artist with The Band of The Grenadier Guards and The Band and Bugles of The Rifles at Salisbury Cathedral, where he will perform George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” in its original version as part of 100th anniversary celebration of the work before Her Majesty Queen Camilla.

Alexander & Buono Foundation a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to identify promising classical musicians and help them launch and sustain careers, while developing new audiences who understand, value, and appreciate classical music.

Tickets are $30 (members $25) at thechurchsagharbor.org. The Church is at 48 Madison Street in Sag Harbor.
