Renowned pianist to perform in Hamilton

HAMILTON – Vivien Harvey Slater, of Poolville, has been playing the piano since she was six years old. After 82 years, the renowned concert pianist is someone all music students can look up to.

“We all aspire to play as beautifully as Vivien Harvey Slater does,” said Anita Humer of Sherburne. The public, and especially young listeners and piano students, are encouraged to attend a free concert that will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Hamilton.

During the concert, titled “Imaginative Listening,” Slater will include two of the many compositions that she has written during the years. “Tanglewood Tales” is based on Greek Mythology and will be accompanied by a narrative written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. “Birds of a Feather” depicts different types of birds and will include poetry written by Slater’s late husband Dr. Joseph Slater, a professor of American literature at Colgate University. Humer will accompany Slater during the performance.
